CR84FN2 and TESC132 -- Christmas Blessings

Hello! Today I had a chance to play a little, so I created this card using some of my new Verve goodies!

I used Verve's Glad Tidings. I was inspired by Mona's creation for her latest challenge, so I stamped and embossed my tag with silver embossing powder. I then used the new A Cut Above Sweet Scalloped Tag die to cut out the tag. The long strip underneath my tag was created by stamping two of the snowflakes (also from Glad Tidings) and embossing them with clear embossing powder. I then sprayed the entire strip with Mint Chocolate Chip Chalkboard Glimmer Mist to achieve the emboss resist effect. I tied a dyed seam binding ribbon bow and added a Prima rose to the top of the tag. Finally, I added some stitching and shiny silver pearls to finish off my card.

Here's a detail shot of the embossing:

I made my card using the colors from Mona's latest challenge, CR84FN2 (see the yummy colors of the graphic below). I also used Taylored Expressions Sketch #132 (also below).

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a card for the JustRite Friday Challenge!
