Christmas Card Challenges #26

Hello and welcome to this week's color challenge from Christmas Card Challenges.  Before I get to the makings of my card, I want to take this opportunity to let you all know that this will be my last post as a Design Team member at Christmas Card Challenges.  Since June of 2014 I have been honored to be a part of this team.  I'm sad to be leaving but there are other things in my life right now that are demanding my attention and energies.   I've enjoyed it very much and loved having all my Christmas cards done through out the year.

Now onto my card.  For the card base I used Early Espresso cardstock.  I added a layer of Calypso Coral then, a layer of Whisper White that I embossed using the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.  The Calypso Coral Baker's Twine was wrapped around the white layer four times and tied into a bow.  I popped that layer up with some Dimensionals.  The circles were cut from Calypso Coral and Whisper White using the Circle Collections Framelits Dies.  The stars are punched from Real Red using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each.  The sentiment is from the Reason for the Season stamp set and was stamped using Real Red ink.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
