Joy Ornament Card

Yeah, it's me again!! LOL I'm using this card for 2 challenges. Loooove it when I can combine. Means I can enter more challenges!! Over at Emma's Throwback Thursday  Challenge #7, we are to use the Wild Card cartridge, making a 'Holiday' "Card" w/your favorite holiday. Now my favorite is Christmas!! It's Jesus' Birthday and also, I'm sure to get a gift!! Just kidding about the gift part!! I just love gathering with the Family! Then over at Mary is doing Christmas in July and this week is challenge #3. For it we are to do a Christmas card using ribbon, buttons and/or lace. Can use 1, 2 or all 3. I chose to use 2. My card is the ornament card cut from Wild Card cartridge using a white cardstock.  The 'J' and 'Y' I cut from Jasmine in red. My card itself is cut at 10 X 5 to make a 5 X 5 card. I then cut it 2 more times (using the patterned paper), moving it over on my Gypsy so it only cut a small portion of the back part so I could have the ornament part. (Emma showed us how to do this) I had hid the little glare cutout on the card itself but not on the layers. I used some 'Crystal' stickles there to give it the shine from the Christmas lights. I used this big red button for the 'O' in 'JOY' and a small bit of ribbon around the top of the ornament. I used some of the patterned paper for my liner and then cut a circle to write my message on and centered it behind the ornament so it wouldn't show. You have until midnight CT Sunday 7/18 to enter for Throwback Thursday and until midnight EST Wednesday, 7/21 to enter at cardztv, so how about joining in on the fun!! Hope ya'll like my card. :)
If you have a moment, check below for the card I did for the cricutcardzchallenge.
For some reason it almost looks yellow. It is a lime/mint green.
