Sunny Challenges 011/11 Season of Joy

Thankfully I'm feeling a lot better today.  So much so, that some of my mojo has come back I think. Well we'll see anyway. lol
This week on Sunny Challenges and Creations we are provided with a sketch and have to use the stamp set Season of Joy.  Yikes....this set hasn't seen daylight for some time.
I haven't used traditional colours of red and green because I wanted to try something different.  I'm in two minds about this card.  In the course of my blog surfing, I've seen the dsp Domestic Goddess used for Christmas cards so I thought..why not?
Here is the result.  Colours used are Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Whisper White.  The ribbon is white satin together with a layer of Daffodil Delight narrow taffeta.  The bells are so cute and are attached using some retired silver cord.  The image panel has been embossed with Pewter embossing powder which is just yummy.  The Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder was perfect, matching the flowers in the image.
All products are Stampin' Up.
Hope you like my attempt at a contemporary Christmas card and thanks for visiting.
