Joan's Challenge Christmas Corners

Good Morning Ladies,
It's Wednesday already. The weeks seem to be going by quickly this year. I have another card for Joan's Challenge Christmas Corners today.
Here is the link to the challenge: http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2013/10/this-weeks-challenge-with-guest-designer.html
The requirements this week are as follows:'
Use corners
Use a ribbon
Use Stocking, gloves, snowflakes anything to do with Christmas
Use something that can be purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
Here is my card ....
This card is a little busier than the one earlier this week.  A different style for the same challenge. My two lowest layers are from an Anna Griffith Christmas pad. The next layer is a piece of La Blanche paper that I purchased at Joan's. I stamped a La Blanche flourish and music notes stamp randomly over the paper. I purchased the La Blanche stamp at Joans. I then took a make-up sponge and a Tim Holtz distressed in pad in Vintage Photo and sponged the whole paper creating a background paper. You can purchase Tim Holtz distressed ink at Joan's also. The angel image is from Wiff Of Joy. I stamped this on Bristol paper and colorized the angel using Prisma pencil, Gamsol, Spica Marker in gold, and Stickles. The angel was then hand cut. For my corners I used a holly berry stamp set from Heartfelt Creations that I purchased at Joan's. I stamped it four times on Bristol paper and colorized it with Copic markers. These were then hand cut. For the ribbon I used a textured shiny gold ribbon and  a thin red ribbon and tied them together in a bow. I added jingle bells to the red ribbon. I love jingle bells. I have always loved them. I'm not quite sure what it is about them but when I hear them they just make me smile!

This is the inside of my card. It was created using a Spellbinder die set and a sentiment from an inkadinkado clear set.
This has been a really fun challenge! Thanks Joan!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
