I've Been Voted Out ~ December SSINK BLOG HOP

Welcome to the December Blog Hop over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration!  This month we are creating projects with Christmas in mind and anything goes.  
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #3 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Diana EStampin' Fun with Diana. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
So first off let me start by saying, "I am a Survivor fan" and have been since it first aired on TV. Well this year, I joined in a Stampin Survivor group on Facebook.  Myself and 17 other ladies, were paired up with a cast member on this season of Blood vs. Water.  My paired team member was Alec.  Even though I held in for while, all good things must come to an end!  My Alec got voted out last week and was sent home.  Booooo!!!  So here is the fun part of this group:  when ever a person is voted out, that person is to send out a handmade card to the remaining players.  In my case, I get to enjoy 11 cards from previous voted out players.  The person left in till the end, will have received 17 cards.  So I want to share the card I designed and sent out to the remaining 6 players.
I wanted to use this stamp set in a non traditional way.  Instead of using dark green, I went with a light shade and used pear pizzazz, I also chose crisp cantaloupe for the berries instead of traditional red.  One of the fun things I did with the black/white typeset DSP, is I used my sponge and discolored it with crumb cake ink.  The layout and detail are pretty simple and I wanted the focal to be on the wreath and the gold shimmering "Joy"!
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ pear pizzazz, very vanilla
Ink ~ pear pizzazz, crisp cantaloupe, crumb cake
Stamp set ~ Wondrous Wreath
DSP ~ typeset, gold shimmer paper
Misc. ~ gold sequin trim, crisp cantaloupe twine, wreath framelit set
I hope you have enjoyed my Christmas card.  Don't forget to leave some "love" and head on over to visit Darcy at Stampin' DJ, you are just gonna love her holiday project!
