Sing Glory


Another Christmas Card to share today. The beginning inspiration started with a color challenge from Just Us Girls, using Purple, Olive and Navy, along with the Sketch Saturday Challenge

The stamp set, papers and inks are from Close to my Heart. The stamps are a hostess only stamp set called Sing Glory.  

I used and Anna Griffin Embossing folder and then added green and purple glitter to the embossed Holly and berries. and also to the stamped holly. 
The paper pack used is Yuletide Carol

This is absolutely gorgeous Nancy - I love these colours together! I particularly like your background paper, it looks as if you have double embossed it with Emb. Powder!! This is such a great effect.

Thank you so much for entering this in the Crafty Calendar (Bingo) Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
