I am entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge (#631 dotty)--and I used the lovely sketch challenge at Jingle Belles for my cards layout.  I used Hello Bluebird stamps (joyful mouse),  and some cute paper from Lawn Fawn for my background.  I colored my image with copics, and watercolor pencils and used glossy accents on my "Joy" word.

JB and SS recycle

Jingle Belles challenge blog has a fun challenge to recycle in honor of mother earth. I recycle so many Christmas items, but paper and tissue paper are big ones...when I was a teen (many millennia ago) 😋my Mom taught me a great way to make cards using recycled tissue paper so that is how I am making my card for their challenge. :-) I am also entering my card in the super cute sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday...Here's my take on the sketch and challenges (both) with my process. :-)
You need a piece of card stock saran wrap, and an iron...I like to cover it sandwich style with a piece of type paper, then iron (on high) over and over the paper until the saran wrap melts to the cardstock and adheres the tissue paper, making sure to ball up and smooth out the tissue paper                                                                                                    to give it texture before starting.
