Just joy .. ten times over

I've made some more long cards to use up some of the envies I bought years ago - A5 card folded in half lengthwise.

The digital image 'joy garland' is from Meljen Designs - it was one that I chose as part of my prize for winning Meljen's challenge 89. I also received 'caroling snowmen' and 'Christmas cocoa', which, no doubt, you'll be seeing soon. I've been fortunate enough to win quite a few challenges recently, so I'll be sharing some more prizes over the next couple of days.

I opened the digital image in Paint and filled in the stars and letters digitally - it took longer than anticipated because some of it had to be done pixel by pixel, but it was worth it because I was then able to print ten copies and mount on to card blanks.

Shopping our stash 33 is 'rewind (choose any of their challenges previously posted) or use a Meljen's image as they are sponsoring the challenge, so these are just right for that.
