A Taste of Christmas

Hi everyone,

Today's card is a very simple one. The card  base is 5x7, the layer is 4.75x6.75. The DSP was so pretty that I didn't add any more images to it. I did take a stylus and dry embossed some of the area's to make it show up better but the photo doesn't give it justce. I also applied some dazzling diamonds to the center pods but it doesn't show up well either. I added the ribbon and the sentiment is again from Pink by Design. I am entering this card into the Totally Gorjuss challenge, they are asking for traditional Christmas colors. Anything Goes Challenge is emboss it. I did use the stylus to dry emboss so I think it should apply to this card. Elephantastic Challenge is make a card with a butterfly or a Christmas card. Thanks you for stopping by for a visit, happy Creating everyone!

Stamp Set: Pink by Design Winter
Paper: very vanilla. Recollections Christmas stack
Ink: memento black
Accessories: ribbon, stylus, mouse pad for the embossing, dazzling diamonds
