Christmas Stamping All Year Long~ Challenge #46

This week we bring you a colour challenge!!!! The team was challenged to use Violet, Vanilla and Gold on their card. This image from Stamp N and Scrap N Plus was perfect for embossing!

I embossed the image in gold, cut out with my Nesties Labels Ten and sponged some eggplant ink around the edges. I added some gold dew drops to the main image. I'm not really impressed how the photo turned out. It is very rich and elegant in real life.

I embossed the Eggplant background with the Damask Cuttlebug Template and cut a Vanilla Border with an EK Success Border Punch. That's about all there is to this card.

Hope that you'll play along with us! Visit the links on my sidebar to see what the creative crafters have come up with this week and head over to the Christmas Stamping Blog to link up your projects!

Happy Stamping!
