Joy to the world

Hello! Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. I'm on vacation from work this week so had plenty of time today to play.

Rustic white cardstock is from PTI, I used it for the base and for the next layer, which is popped up using foam tape.

Embossing folder is from We R Memory Keepers. I love the quilted look it provides and it's pretty deeply embossed. 

Banner tag is cut from Bazzill antique paper and then colored with Festive Berries distress inks. The music sheet paper is just that, paper, so it was a bit of a challenge to sponge the distress ink on without tearing it.

Poinsettia die is from Poppy Stamps and the pine die is from Impression Obsession. I used some cream colored satin ribbon in the back ground so that it would help to set off the colors of greens and hide the line between the embossing.  Lastly, the sentiment is from PTI.
Thanks for stopping by.
