Joy to the World

Hey Everybody,

Just in case any of you will be on vacation and away from your pc, I want to with everyone of you a very Merry Christmas.

My next card was inspired by my good buddy  Sarah of Aunt Bee's Pickles. 
She used this same stamp "Old Wheel", combined with a stamp called "Winter Star" both from Doodle Pantry.  Being the country gal that I am, I just had to make this card. 

On my card, I combined the "Old Wheel" Doodle Pantry stamp with one of the stamps from my old shop that was part of a Christmas horseshoe, coloring them with my ProMarkers, and adding a little distress ink around the edges. 

The star was made with A/C tape, folded for a 3-D effect, and partly colored with promarkers to add gold to the silver.  The Joy/Lasso rope embellishment was made with some gold wire that originally had happy birthday letters hanging from it.  I just removed those and made my lasso rope.  The beads were from Hobby Lobby, and I just used some wire to make the word
Joy, adding the beads as I went.  I used Liquid Applique and glitter for the snow.  The ribbon is from good ole Walmart, and I made a little bow from the left over lasso wire, gluing it with hot glue.  The papers are by Elizabeth Brownd/K & C Company.  The sentiment is from the song "Joy To The World", and was made in Paint Shop Pro. 

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

I would like to enter ths card into the following challenges:

Awesome card, and the Wagon Wheel seemed very 'vintage' to me as I looked at it. Like an Old Fashioned Christmas. Loved the effect of the glitter on the liquid applique. Must try that. Thanks for all the tips on the recycling too....all great ideas. TFS
