SU LateNightStampers Challenge/Color Me Happy!

What a busy week I have had and finally got a chance to post this weeks challenge for SU LateNightStampers.  The challenge this week is to "Color Me Happy."  I had been wanting to use this church for a Christmas Card this year which is a part of the Christmas Village digital Stamp that I got last year for My Digital Studio.  I actually sized it to the size I needed, then used a digital punch to put it on and added the mat, I then added the ornament from another digital stamp set, wishes & greetings, made it a little smaller so I could cut and out punch the mat, and then to  the same 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock I added the inside sentiment, then printed it all out and cut and punched as needed.  How great is that.  What actually inspired the church is this weeks sketch over at Sunny Challenges and Creations.  It just seemed to be the right size to pull off this sketch.  Now I did have to find an image that I could color since that is our challenge this week at LNS.  So I used markers to color the church and doors and used Dazzling Details for the church windows.  They look a lot better in person.
Here is a side view of the card!
And now the inside that I also did with my digital studio.  I did color in the red berries with a marker.
OK, now you need to let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking!

I think your card is delightful!! Love the way you've described the window treatment, it must shimmer beautifully. The embossed background and the sentiment in the ornament are wonderfully done! Very nice, Jonia!! God bless.
PS The inside is fantastic too!

What a good idea to print the church and cut it out for your card. The window treatments are dazzling too :)

Must agree with you Jonia - the church is the perfect size for the sketch. I love your sentiment inside your ornament, along with all the embossing & colouring. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Sunny Challenges & Creations

Jonia, this is really lovely! The church is perfect for our sketch this week. I love how you've incorporated the sentiment on the ornament ... might have to borrow that idea! The Cherry Cobbler ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations this week!
