Happy Holidays!

I forgot to post my Pez-A- Doodle card this morning! I made this delightful holiday card for the ways to use it challenge on SCS, the challenge was to do something out of your comfort zone. I am the worst embosser, especially with white embossing powder, those darn flakes always seem to show up on dark cardstock! I think it took me ten tries before I finally got this image to look half way decent! I used the Pinecone Scroll stamp set and embossed with Ranger seafoam white. The paper is a blue metallic from The Paper Company and the ribbon is May Arts white satin.
