Christmas Joy - Sugar Creek Hollow

It's the weekend!! And, we all know what the weekends are like in December...BUSY!! I hope that all of you are well and that you are handling the stress well. I know that I often get caught up in all of the things to do in the holiday season! This year, I'm trying my best to remember to relax and concentrate on the true reason for this holiday--the birth of Jesus. That is my true Christmas Joy!

Our challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is a color combo this week -- using red and white. The high contrast colors really are striking and fun to play with. My Real Red satin ribbon came just in time for this card. I think I could live with just satin ribbon...it is so luscious! Check out the design team creations HERE for some more inspiration!

Stamps: Christmas Joy by Sugar Creek Hollow

Hey Nancy!
Well, it had to happen, we chose the same image.....I must be honest, your card rocks way over mine! :) Your bow is perfect (mine looks like a bow challenged person made it--that would be true!) and I like the white background you have chosen! All in all this card is simply gorgeous, bright, cheerful, and elegant! Love it!!

Hi Nancy, when I seen this come up on the DT blog, I KNEW it was one of my favorites this week. That bow is a gorgeous accent to an already lovely card.

This is so pretty. I love how you compensated for the cuttlebug folder with the rhinestones. They're the perfect touch of sparkle for this beautiful card.

Very pretty Nancy. Love the textures and the die cuts and that gorgeous bow! I love the primary color of white here - it just makes everything else pop.
