Holly Jolly Greetings

Hello, welcome to my blog.  My card today is for our Team Challenge in which we were given a piece of the Fancy Frost Specialty DSP and we had to make a full card with it.  Then we mail them back to Frenchie (my upline) and then she puts all of the participants into a drawing and the winner gets all of the cards made for that month.

I struggled just a bit with this paper because I wanted to do something cool with it so I inked up my brayer with versamark ink and rolled it over the dsp.  I then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I tried to have a light hand, thinking that just the dots would get the ink on them, but the versamark went onto the background as well.  I liked how it turned out even though it was not what I expected.  I kept with the heat embossed theme and stamped the snowflake onto silver foil paper with versamark and heat embossed it with black powder.  To finish off the card, I added some of the silver Glitter Ribbon from the holiday catalog (pg 37).  I love the neutral colors and all of the sparkle and shine.  My card recipe is below.
