Joy to the World

I love this color combo of red, black and kraft. It's this week's color challenge at Splitcoast and it's a good one. I was going to add a bit of gold and tried embossing this image from Joy to the World (ODBD) in gold and bleaching out/chalking in, but my bleach must be too old cuz it didn't work. Oh well. The Disco Black embossing powder I've used here really adds some pizazz to the card. I decided not to color the image in. Digging through my scraps I found this old red velvet paper and punched the small squares out of those. This card really has dimension. Wish you could see it in real life!
I am still decorating my card insides. I wanted to show you so you could see the lovely font from this terrific Our Daily Bread Designs new Christmas set. Isn't it awesome?
