Christmas Joy and Craftmad Journal

I have a card here today for Denise's 'Pick Three' Challenge at Stamping Vacation. The sketch I used was for the Taylored Expressions Challenge #89.
I used SU Certainly Celery for the base card then heat embossed snowflakes from the SU Snowflake set using clear embossing powder. Next I layered SU River Rock and SU Sahara Sand and ran them through the Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Swiss Dots'. Next I stamped up this wonderful stamp I won in a giveaway over at Manic Stamper. It is unmounted and I haven't got to and bought any ezi-mount yet. So, suddenly thought last night, if I ink it and leave it flat on the bench then place the card I am inking it onto on top with a mouse pad on top of that I could use it. That is what I did. To finish the card off I cut a scalloped edged circle from silver jak paper (Blue Edge Crafts) and a plain circle which I embossed the edge of with my nestabilities. Stamped 'Joy' from the SU Snowflake set. TaDah!! all done.

For the Pick Three challenge this week we had to choose from the following list of stamps. I have highlighted the ones I have used.

1. Snowman or snowflake
2. Winter mittens or hat
3. Tree
4. Boots or shoes
5. Any animal
6. Sentiment
7. Winter Scarf
8. Sled or Sleigh
