We finally had a bit of very much needed and welcome rain this week in Northern California, so it only seems fitting to show you the "Joyful" card first! :)
The embossed background is accented with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, and as I've done before with this LaLa Land Crafts diecut, the street lamp is accented with Inka-Gold "Old Gold" metallic paint, and simply accented with branch punches, narrow ribbon, and a tiny bell...
The diecut sentiment words are accented with a gold gel pen...

Punch: Martha Stewart "Medium Branch" Embossing folder: Tim Holtz "Bricked and Woodgrain"
Miscellaneous: ribbon, mini bell, Pumice Stone Distress Ink, Viva Inka-Gold "Old Gold", gold gel pen
The second of today's cards is a bit more shabby, with a bit more detail and lots of diecuts...
The little diecut poinsettia is surrounded with a holly diecut, and a twig wreath adorned with punched branches, clear red gems, and sparkly snow...
and a little pearl flourish pointing the way to another flourish die cut in the corner...
