A Collection of Joy

I have a duo of sweet, sweet cards today using the 
JOYOUS COLLECTION
by Authentique Paper
I love the color scheme and the hint of chalkboard fun in this collection.
And you can never dismiss the adorable artwork that Authentique always seems to find!

I love the gorgeous detail and scroll work in the punch-out card...pair it up with 
the whimsy of the gingerbread men and patterned papers and you have a truly unique look!

In this collection you will also find punch-out circles, which made a nice back-drop
for the focal-point of this card.  I used a die to cut the border (from the 6X6 paper pad).
The sweet gingerbread embellishments are from our friends at Petaloo!

Honestly, there are so many fun elements in this collection that I had a hard time trying to pick what to use!  For this card I used another one of the punch-out cards from the Titles & Phrases sheets.  
I trimmed an edge from a scrolled frame and tucked it in at the bottom of the sentiment.

I carried the black theme to the top and paired up a scalloped circle die cut with
the nostalgic Santa sticker.  A few glitter holly leaves and buttons from my stash and it's complete.

Card #1 Authentique Products: Joyous Collection- 6X6 Paper Pad; Circles & Scallops; Statements Paper
Card #2 Authentique Products: Joyous Collection- 6X6 Paper Pad; Statements Paper; Details Sticker Sheet; Frames & Corners

Nothing like dreaming of a little Christmas when it's 103 degrees outside LOL
Glad you've stopped by!
