Inspired by...Pink Joy

I've had red, green and gold out on my desk for a while now and wanted a change so I was inspired when saw the challenge at Inspired By...Pink Christmas.

Inspired by Joy

I pulled out my favorite cover plate die with the sweet Christmas foliage.  It has room for an oval but I had another die set out on my desk (more on that on Thursday and Saturday!) that included "JOY".  I added a poinsettia for the "O" to coordinate with the background.

I'm making so many cards right now, I'm not taking time for great photography.  The above picture doesn't show the detail in the poinsettia and I had specifically picked that poinsettia die for the fun detail that tied it into the background.  Here's another photo that shows the detail - but the natural lighting on a winter day turned the card peachy instead of pink!
