Be Joyful for Sunday Stamps! #140

Hello, crafty friends and welcome back to another fun challenge at Sunday Stamps!  This week we are working with a sketch:

A classic sketch layout with a little extra "something" on the bottom left hand side.  You can change the shape of the heart to anything you want.  Here's what I made using the Merriest Wishes Bundle.

A Christmas card using the rich colors of Night of Navy and Whisper White with a splash of Silver.   To create the front panel, I first embossed a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock using the Holly Embossing folder and then added strips of the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape to the center.  NOTE: The Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape is part of my FREE gift offer for the month of November! See my Online Rewards page HERE. 
To create the layered sentiment, I stamped  "Be Joyful" with Versamark ink and embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss powder.  It was then die cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and the Layering Square Framelits.  Stampin' UP! has done a fantastic job coordinating the Layering Circles, Squares and Ovals to match the new and awesome Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies!  Because of the extreme popularity of this new die set, the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies are on back order until November 28, 2016, but can still be ordered. 
I used the framleits from the Merriest Wishes bundle to create the silver ornament using Silver Foil Sheets, and the Night of Navy bow is from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  I love the pine boughs in Night of Navy card stock against white- so striking in person!
