Serendipity Challenge Blog - JOY

Have you seen there's a new Challenge blog in town?  If you're a fan of Serendipity Stamps you're going to want to check this out!  The challenges are bi monthly so you have lots of time to play.  All you have to do is create something using one Serendipity Stamps image and you have a chance to win $20 off your next order!  How easy is that?  Check out the new challenge site here!

I made this quick holiday card for my friend Joyce (surprise!) as a little play with her name.  I used the floral alphabet from Serendipity Stamps and embossed the letters in red.  Each letter features a floral image for example the "J" here features a Jack in the Pulpit, the "O" an Orchid and the "Y" yarrow.  Think of all the pretty words you can spell out with these lovely letters - maybe a loved ones name?  $20 off would be sweet wouldn't it?
Come check out the new blog - I'd love to see your creations posted there!

Jeanne this card is beautiful, and i hadn't thought that Joyce is Joy! She will love this. The new challenge blog will definitely be fun, what a versatile stamp set.

Well, I am surprised! What a beautiful card. Those letters are really stunning. My mom told me that she almost named me Joy, but decided not to risk it--just in case I didn't live up to my name. Nice, huh?

I love the beautiful red on white...bet it is super shiny in person! I bet you could spell out a lot of words with such a great alphabet...and flowers too, right up your alley Jeanne!

Beautiful idea for a card, Jeanne! It looks like it could be framed and mounted on the wall. The red on white is very striking!
