Todays card comes by way of Stamping 411 in the form of a sketch challenge. I really had fun with this card, plus I got to use my brand new set from Stampin Up called The Sounding Joy....and it sure is a beautiful set! I embossed Joy in Silver and misted the main panel with Shimmer paint/alcohol mist to give some extra shimmer. I tried to show this in the 2nd photo, although I don't thing it showed up very well. It's always so much prettier in real life. The paper I used is an older set of specialty paper that I ordered a while ago thinking I'd use it for wedding cards since it was so classy looking......again with the hoarding thing.....Anyway, I decided now was as good of time as any to use it and it would go perfect with the elegant Sounding Joy set. The brown paper is a shimmery bronze color and is gorgeous! I wish I had more of it now! Oh well!
