Christmas Greetings

It's been ages since I entered a challenge at Our Daily Bread Design.  This week we are to use both heat & dry embossing--2 things I love. Also gave me a chance to use my new ODBD stamp set called Christmas Flourished Verses.  I gold embossed the greeting & then blended Distress Inks spun sugar & festive berries. Once again I brushed on Perfect Pearls.  I used one of my oldest embossing folders for the panel & sponged the card front edges with festive berries. Love this shimmery gold May Arts ribbon & finished off with Class A Peel gold sticker dots. I'm also entering SSS Monday Throwback (Holiday Cards, Dec. 1, 2014) & Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
