Texture @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is time again for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ...

I am sooo in love with this card, turned out way better than what I had in my head! (don't you love those moments) lol  I've made a personal challenge with myself as well and am using up and finishing a full packet of Rub On's and this image along with the 'Joy' sentiment are from an already opened Kaisercraft pack.  The bottom layer has been script embossed and then had a little ink distressing over it with TH Distress Inks.  The music DP is Graphic 45, bead spray and flower is from my Prima stash along with ribbon and twine from my stash of goodies.

As always the girls and I would love if you played along with us at
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I look forward to seeing you there! 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)

Gorgeous card! I can see why you are happy about this one. : ) And I'm so glad to see that someone else sets challenges for themselves like using up a pack of something. I never would have guessed your image is a rub-on. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
