The glory of Christmas 58: focus on the sentiment

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 58: focus on the sentiment. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

The card blank is a lovely deep blue stardream that has a glittery look according to how the light shines on it. I used an offcut of Echo park 'winter time' patterned paper to stamp the Joy to the world Clarity stamp, inked with Adirondack denim. I then masked off the O and stamped the Clarity carol singers stamp, again using the denim ink. The strip behind the ribbon is a snippet left from printing some Ooh la la digital paper long ago, which I think goes just right with the other paper. Ribbon and felt buttons from stash.
