Merry and Bright



This is one of the Christmas cards I've been working on lately. I stamped the background using an image from Vintage Labels with Scarlet Jewel onto the same color cardstock. The ornament tops and strings are embossed with Gold powder, as well as the sentiment.



Thanks for looking!

Just love that! I finally ordered Holiday Button Bits on Friday; can't wait for it to get here. Hopefully, I can get something done before the holidays. "See" you tomorrow night!

Ooh, I love the embossing, and the scalloped edge with the white peeking through, and the gorgeous colour.
