Merry Christmas - The Merry Christmas Challenge #44

Wednesday November 22, 2017
 
We're back... the Holy and Ivy team with another challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge #44.
Again we are a weekly challenge and every week the same..
 ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS IT'S CHRISTMAS
Check out the Holy and Ivy creations over at TMCC blog.
 

This is my Christmas card. I really wanted to add some sequins but as I laid them out to see how they would look they just didn't look right. So again this is a simple CAS card. I used an old wood block tree stamp by Denami Designs, and Simon Says sentiment. I used Simon Says gold embossing powder. To give more interest I used my Embossing pen and went around the edges free hand and then added the same embossing powder.  It really looks good. I don't think my lighting is right cause I see a glare on the paper. But it is pretty in person.
