Joy - a card for the More Than Words mini challenge

Hi everyone!  I made a 6x6 card for the More Than Words mini challenge and the word to use is "Joy".  
As 2016 comes to a close and we look for a brighter future in 2017, 
I can definitely relate with this word because if you just look around, 
there is always joy to be found!

Here is my card:

Maja Design Nyhavn collection set the tone for the color palette of gray and pink.  
Its pattern enticed me to apply diamond shaped silver bling with gray pearls in between.

I acrylic painted the Want2Scrap chipboard word 'Joy' in Gunmetal Metallic Gray, 
then made the decision to create a hanging ornament with it.
After cutting a circle, I decorated the diameter edge with silver Stickles.
The word was centered and some clear mini bling was randomly adhered.

After making the pink pearl strand for the ornament, 
I used the same design in varying lengths below the floral arrangement.  

I also made some dainty hat pins with pink & silver beads to place with the flowers.

Using my most favorite die, I cut rose leaves in the same Maja Design papers.

Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz in Scintillating Silver made the beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts cottage roses shine!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!  Lisa : )

    <> to you my friend!! Carrie:)

  3. Your card is beautiful and I love that Tattered Lace die! I've been looking for it but no one seems to carry it anymore.

    1. Thanks for your visit! The Tattered Lace "Ornate Leaves" is no longer available. I find that so unfortunate because it's got the best dies out of any other I've seen.


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! I appreciate every one of them!
