Monogram Joy and RAK

You have to know by now that JOY is my favorite word. It was the first thing I thought to spell out when I used the Garden Delight Alphabet for the first time. This card is also from Friday night when I cleaned off my desk so it's the same cardstock I used yesterday. After I finished this card, I realized that I could have easily made this into a Christmas card just by using different colors and maybe even gold embossing the letters. I'll have to remember that next time.

Finished Card size: 5.5"x 4.25"
Stamps: Garden Delight Alphabet (smARTworks), Leaf Scroll Pattern (Impression Obsession/Alesa Baker Designs)
Card Stock:Gable Green and Garden Green (SU), Purple( Bazzill),
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukenko),Always Artichoke(SU)
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Other: Scallop paper edgers, Ribbon

The ribbon I used on my card was sent to me by Kathy W along with this card. I wonder how she knew I would love a purple rak ( purple card, purple ribbon and purple images on purple cardstock). Thank you Kathy. That was beyond sweet of you to do that.
ETA: after I read this later I didn't think it was clear that Kathy sent me a purple card and some purple goodies to play with.

I can't get enough "joy!" I have several joy stamps, and am always using them ... I even have a "joy" category in my card files. I own very few alphabets, but I love how this one can not only spell joy (!), but can be the focal point of a card.

Sigh ... my smARTworks wish list keeps on growing! :-)
