Joy to the World

 Happy Saturday everyone!
 It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar! This month the theme is... Shades of Brown & Cream with the option of a tag. 
For my creation I used this adorable stamp from Clearly Wordsworth.  I stamp the little Christmas Carolers onto watercolor paper in Memento Rich Cocoa, embossed it with clear embossing powder and then watercolored it with distressed inks.  The papers are from K&Company and I used a recollections punch for the snowflakes.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash.  I wanted to add lots of sparkly glitter but this card is going into my box for OWH! So NO glitter! :) 
 For more inspiration make sure you stop by the challenge blog and take a look at the DT wonderful creations!
Thanks for stopping by enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
