Fancy Joy

Thinking of everyone dealing with Hurricane Irma. Hard to believe it's happening again so soon after Harvey.  
I love using the word Joy on Christmas cards & remembered a Flourishes stamp set I've hardly used. Just have time to enter the challenge at Merry Monday.  
Finally opened my Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder--so beautiful! The color comes from a green Zig & Autumn Red Nuvo drops. I didn't want to add another color, so watercolored the word & the oval frame with Platinum Pearl Liquid Pearls.  
I'm also entering ATSM, HLS Christmas, SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

We do need to remember joy whether it's Christmas or not and it's been inspiring to see people finding joy even in the darkest hours. I love the elegant design of your card and refreshing subtle color palette.

  15. Wow beautiful elegant card, love the embossing on the white. Thank you for your message at my blog, my Dad and Step Mother are safe and fine. They moved to a friends home on higher ground. We don't know yet if their home was flooded. Power and cellular systems are out, somehow she communicated using her car power :) (the car survived outside as well, it was parked close to the building). Take care. xxx

  16. Clean crisp and oh so elegant Greta. The hurricanes are dreadful, we have friends in Florida who were evacuated and pray they are safe as communications now seems to be lost.
