I made this card for the ABC Christmas Challenge 'J for Joy & K for Keep it Simple', the Christmas Card Throwdown 'Turquoise and Gold' colour challenge and Crafty Cardmakers 'No Patterned Paper' challenges.   The card was from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Die: Creative Expressions 'Festive Collection - Joy'
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Twinkle'
Snippets: Turquoise and gold pearlescent card, white silk card

I embossed a piece of white card with the Twinkle folder, trimmed it, layered it onto turquoise card and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  I die cut 'JOY' from turquoise card and the swirly 'JOY' from gold card.  I attached the turquoise letters behind the gold outline and attached the completed die cut to the centre of the card using Pinflair glue.
