Christmas Wishes

I actually tried a new technique on this card and it worked!!! OK, I'm probably the last one in Stampdom to try it, but I finally got around to it, LOL. I inked up this image from Verve's Ornamental Christmas set first with Versamark and then with Riding Hood Red ink, stamped it, applied clear detail embossing powder and heat set it. It worked beautifully!!!

I'm using Mojo Monday #117 sketch--on the day after it was posted!!! This may be a first, LOL!!! My patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Good Cheer 8 x 8 pad and I'm using Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla and PTI's Aqua Mist card stock. I also embossed the ornament cap and hook with Ranger Gold Fine Detail powder, added a ribbon and button and used a snowflake border punch.

Thanks for stopping by today!
