2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #14

Happy Sunday!

I'm excited to share my next Christmas card with you.  This weeks challenge is Embossing, wet or dry.  For all of the details, click HERE.

I normally tend to go for the non-traditional colors, but these papers have been in my stash for a while, and I really wanted to use them.  Also, I did emboss, I promise!  It's just all covered up under everything else.  And, did you see my "straight" stitching?!  I'm rather impressed with myself this time.  I haven't really practiced much.  The sewing Gods must have been with me when I sewed on that piece. lol  I love the look of this card, with the lace and all of the details.

I've combined the following challenges into my card today:

The Crafts Meow - February Sketch
Top Tip Tuesday #71 - Stitching
Emerald Faerie Garden #19 - Embossing
Creatalicious Challenge #31 - Lace
Ribbon Carousel #42 - Anything Goes (must have lace, ribbon, twine, etc.)

I do hope you'll head over to the CCC blog to everyone's cards.  And yep, you guessed it, they're pretty fantastic!
