The Spirit of Christmas


I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday - and going to have a great weekend coming up!

This is for Diva Coffee Break Designs challenge (sketch) #195. Go check out that site - they have fun challenges each week. It also qualifies for the Stamp Insanity challenge (embossing).

The image is from To You and Yours and the sentiment from Snow Swirled (SU). I heat embossed the image using Egyptian Gold embossing powder (Judi Kins). That stuff really shines! I dry embossed using the Snow Flake and D'Vine Swirls folders. Card stock used was white and Cherry Cobbler. Two different sizes of pearls from SU were also used.

Thanks for stopping by............
