Stamp Something - Brown Plus Something

Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at Stamp Something which is to use brown predominantly in your card.

Brown isn't a colour I would usually use but I made Christmas cards last year using this stamp & they didn't look right coloured in so I decided this year just to stamp the image & I am really pleased with the result.

Everything on this card is from Stampin Up except the nativity image & the 'Joy' sentiment which is computer generated. The cardstock, the ink used to stamp the image, the crossgrain ribbon on the front of the card & the designer paper are all Close to Cocoa. That's the great thing about Stampin Up products everything can be colour co-ordinated.

The sentiment on the front is from a Stampin Up set called Wonderous Gift.

I have everything stamped cut & ready to make another 12 of these tonight with a couple of glasses of the red stuff!!
