Feel Better

This card I have made for a sketch challenge at:
Sketch #27
I have combined 2 digi stamps both from:
I used a brayer to add distress ink on the embossing folders then
placed a piece of white cardstock carefully on the inked side.
I wanted to use some shaved polystyrene for the snow but guess what?
I accidentally spilt it all so it ended up in the vacuum cleaner.
I used Scribbles white Fabric paint and added some glitter.
Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome!

Have a Merry........

This card was made for a tutorial challenge at:
It is a new technique for me and I just had to try it!!  I redid it many times
using different color embossing powders but never happy with
any of them.  Even this card is not 100%!  I am not sure why the embossing
is not that clear especially on the words.
As I wasn't getting the colors right I decided to go for Gold, Silver and White
on black cardstock - not your traditional Christmas colors though!
The Christmas greeting is from: Inspired by Stamping
and the Trees from: GinaK designs.
I am always happy to have comments!
Thanks for looking.
