Last week's challenge was to do some embossing, whether it be wet or dry. I opted to go dry and dug out my Tim Holtz Snow Flurries Embossing Folder. A little Old Olive, a little Real Red, a streak of Gold Foil, a button and some linen thread all came together to make this Christmas card. Since it seemed to be rather stark, I used some Vintage Photo to sponge around the edges of everything but the gold. The gold looks a bit dull in the photo but it really does shine on the card itself.
