One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #17 Reminder

Just a reminder that there's still about a week left to link up your cards to One Layer Christmas Card Challenges current challenge.  As always it's anything goes but you have the option to use the twist.  The twist this time is family.  If you do use the twist you'll be entered in for the drawing to win an ARTplorations stencil!  Here's my card to inspire you...



I decided to use a pale aqua card base for a change.  I wanted to emboss my image in gold and gold always looks great on this pale blue.  My stamp is by Hero Arts and I actually forgot I had it (it's NBUS!) or I might have used it for my first card.  LOL!  I stamped it with versamark and then embossed it in glitter gold powder (Recollections).  I did the same for the sentiment (STAMPlorations).  I scored some lines on both sides to just finish off the card.  It seemed to need something.  I glued the bow on last.  The bow looks rather white in the photo but its actually a pale blue.

Hope you'll take a moment to join us over at OLCCC.  We would love to see you there!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
