a more elegant Christmas

White-on-white embossing always strikes me as quite elegant, and I hope it adds a touch of that to this card. I added a few pearls to increase that feeling.

This card is based on this weeks sketch for 365 Cards, #284.

The ornament is an extra from a previous card I made.  I silver-embossed the sentiment and cut it out with nesties. (My standard "Merry Christmas" stamp was an old cheapie. It wasn't stamping properly and I thought it was warped so I decided to unmount it. It literally cracked and fell apart while I was trying to get it off. I guess the rubber had dried out. That has NEVER happened to me before, and now I have to head out to find another one).

I used the textile embossing folder to give the background a little dimension and a pattered ribbon to add a little more color.
