I made this Christmas card to celebrate the carol, "Joy to the World." It is one of my favorite carols! Singing this at an Advent or a Christmas Eve service brings joy to my heart and adds to the special worship!
I love this holly berry image. I'm sorry to say that I cannot remember where I bought it-- it is 1999 PSX K-1826. I believe I purchased it from JoAnn's Fabrics.
What a fun image to color! I used my Copic markers...R27, R89, YG67, YR21, Blending pen and C1 Cool Gray for shading.
Stampin' Up papers were my choice here: Riding Hood Textured dp, Basic Black and Creamy Caramel. As I've mentioned before, PaperTrey Ink papers are my favorites to Copic color on, Vintage Cream is featured here.
I used a number of punches here...Stampin' Up's corner rounder punch, circle punches, and a Martha Stewart Lace Border punch.
A sentiment from the Flourishes Rejoice set and May Arts ribbon finished it off...
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Such a fabulous card Deb! The holly image is so beautiful and your colouring is superb. I love the little bit of caramel card against the red and the luscious bow is perfect. 'Joy to the World' is a lovely carol and I love it too but my favourite is always 'Hark the Herald Angels sing', I loved singing it when I was in a choir at school and I still love it now. Hope you had a great weekend. Chris

Deb, what a beautiful card. I love it all. Your coloring is awesome and the MS punch trim really sets it off. And then you added the wonderful black and white checked ribbon. Great job!
