CCC Week #5 - Happy Holidays

Hi ya'll!

It's Sunday, which brings us to another Christmas Card challenge.  This week, the callenge is to include embossing, wet or dry, on your cards.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I know what you're thinking, it's a really busy card.  I wanted to try to push my comfort zone again, and use tons of patterns in my card.  It worked, but I'm not exactly sure I dig it as much as I would like to.  I embossed the patterned paper that is under the sentiment, and the purple strip of patterned paper across the bottom.  For a bit of added interest, I sanded the embossing so that it stands out a bit more.  All in all, I love the non-traditional colors and the sketch I used. 

I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what my friends are up to, and to meet our February guest designer.  I'm sure you'll be inspired, just like I am.

Have a wonderful day!
