Joy Joy Joy



Take note:  A Tuesday Trigger post that isn't going up at the last minute on Sunday night!  Whoop whoop!  I recently won a gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs and my Jingle Joy sentiments and dies arrived just in time for this challenge!  The baubles made me think of the Lil' Inker bell so I cut them from origami foil to get that shiny look.  I was also inspired by the floor boards in the picture and used some woodgrain embossed card for the background.  Since the stamps are Chrismasy, but all that grey is not something I'd usually equate with Christmas, I'm going to enter this in the non-holiday colours portion of the challenge at The Paper Players.  And with all those dies how could I not enter it in the latest Young Crafters Unite challenge?  
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics, (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Jingle Joy Sentiments) Lil' Inker Designs
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko

Dies:  (Bell & letters) Lil' Inker Designs
Impression Plate:  (Woodgrain) PTI

Fabulous take on the trigger Jen! I've had my thinking cap on, but have visitors this weekend.... so chances are I won't have a chance to join. Don't think I could beat this though!!
