Sketch Saturday - Sketch #335

Happy Saturday! So glad you're here for another week's sketch. Simon Says Stamp! is this week's generous sponsor for our Sketch Saturday challenge.  Their prize is a $25 gift certificate to their store! We are so fortunate at Sketch Saturday to have them as a regular monthly sponsor.

And now for my take on Deb's fun sketch.   I'm really happy with how this one turned out.  The word "joy", the brown polka dot paper, the green and stone colored frames are inlaid. I fussy cut one of the Emerald Faerie elves I had already colored on my desk (a benefit of "practice" coloring images) and made him look like he was hanging onto the tail of the y.  Scraps from the "joy" paper of the die cut are used again for the diagonal strip.  White embossing powder, a few square metal embellishments and one enamel dot finish off the card.

 Visit the Sketch Saturday blog to see what the rest of the DT did with Deb's sketch.
