Peace and JOY - 3-Step Card - FFFC #102

Hello.  Happy Friday!

It's time for a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This challenge is being hosted by the lovely Nathalie and it's a colour challenge of Cream and Brown.  You can find complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  While you're there, check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created.

This is the card that I came up with--another Christmas card.

After the 4-step card with NOEL in my previous posting, it just seems that the next thing to do is to make a 3-step card with JOY...tee hee.

These are close-ups of the Magnolia cuties that I am featuring:

- Peaceful Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013

- Holy Tilda With Violin from the Nativity Collection 2012

Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies from various companies and other crafting items.

Three of dies that I used on this card are also available from Magnolia-licious:
- Memory Box 98467 Pine Needle Border
- Magnolia Doohickey Swirls
- Magnolia Doohickey Poinsettia

Challenges for this card:
Sketchy Colors #186 - Sketch (for card front)
Addicted To Stamps Challenge #69 - Punches and Dies
