For A-Joy

My niece's mom's birthday is coming up.   Her middle name is Joy, and so I had it stuck in my head to use this Christmas Tim Holtz die for her birthday card!

I think I need to bust out a few more cards with this concept-- I have tons of cool backgrounds lying around-- would be a great way to use them!  I just ordered another word die set like this but with more versatile occasion sentiments.  Yay. Plans for more crafting!

Supplies and notes:

  • Recollections watercolor resist stack panel colored with Color Bursts
  • Background paper from my stash
  • Tim Holtz Christmas words die

I plan to share this at the current JUGs challenge:
