Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 62 - Anything Goes

Hello!

This week it's a really easy challenge at Scrapbook Sisters, as it's Anything Goes!

I decided to get the embossing powders and distress inks out to make a lovely Christmas card with the Kanban Christmas Tree stamp I picked up the other day when I was supposed to be just getting white organza and ended up with some burgundy as well, the stamp set and this rather lovely satin which is a gorgeous toffee colour... and a few other bits and bobs that just happened to fall in my basket on the way to the till... ahem :-D


I stamped and embossed it with white embossing ink, then added distress inks all over, then popped a few more flourishes on and a sentiment.  



I can't find a link anywhere to this stamp set - sorry!!  All the rest of the links are at the bottom of the post.  Anyway, I popped some gems here and there on the tree just for a bit of sparkle, cos you can't have a Christmas card with no bling whatsoever... It's just not allowed!!
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by
