2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #26

Greetings!

It's time for another Christmas Card challenge!  I have a short post for you today, as I'm getting ready to BBQ and hangout by the pool, with a friend.  This weeks challenge is Bling.  For all of the details, click HERE


This is my very first one layer card.  I used masking tape around the edges, so that I'd have the framed look.  I used my distress inks for the emboss resist technique I wanted to try.  The sentiment was embossed as well.  I have to say, this turned out better than I expected.  I love it!  I've combined the following challenges in my card as well.

Drunken Stampers #89 - There Can Only Be One (one layered cards)
Sketchbook Saturday #61 - Sketch (my loose interpretation of it anyway)
Crazy 4 Challenges #138 - One Layer
Marks Finest Papers #109 - Emboss Your Main Image
52 Christmas Card Throwdown #5 - Embossing

I hope you all are having a wonderful, and safe, holiday weekend!
Hugs!
