Holiday Card 12 - J for Joy

Hello, everybody! Today I'm sharing another holiday card!  Inspiration has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge.  Day 12 is "J" and I went with Joy.

I used Memory Box Snowflake Joy die, without the snowflake.  Instead I used a poinsettia image from Beccy's Place Poinsettia set.  I fussy-cut two of the same image and popped up a layer on foam tape.  The letters were die-cut from sparkly cardstock, and I added some die-cut greenery from my stash.  The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps Joyous Holiday, and the woodgrain paper is from Pretty Painted Floors 6x6" paper pack. I finished off the card with a number of red gems.

I would also like to support the following challenges:

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

P.S. to my Followers:  I spent a couple hours visiting blogs yesterday and will continue today.  If I haven't been to visit you yet, please be patient as I will be there soon.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you made!

Love very much this clear and impressive look, Kitty!!! And your card makes me smile because I have seen the J prompt at Beccy Place and tought the same word, and a similar design, but haven't time for putting hands on craft!!😊 Such fabulous catch-eye is that poinsettia!! And your fussy cut looks just perfect!! The faux woodgrain background makes the card warm and festive, adorable!!
Big hugs!!

Gorgeous design for a Christmas card with great patterned paper. Makes the sentiment pop. Thanks for joining us at CHNC Patterned Paper Challenge this month.

Love this one Kitty, the whole this is really appealing. The "wooden" background gives your card a homey, vintage kind of feel. I really like the sparkly letters, and the way you replaced the "O" with the poinsettia flower was a great idea. Love it!
