Not Your Traditional Christmas Card

Dear Ones~
It has once again been awhile since I posted here. We had our grandsons for the weekend - so much fun. They are 7 & 9, and are always coming up with something fun and funny.
This card was made for 2 challenges. The Monday Challenge over at StampTV , Christmas Comes Early, and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge , Anything Goes.

Here is my card:
I decided to do a kind of non-traditional card this time. I love that mother and child image, and wanted to color it to match the patterned paper. Isn't that little leg on the infant just the cutest thing?  I heat embossed the image with GKD gold embossing powder, and also gold embossed the mat behind the patterned paper. That way the golds would absolutely match.

Here are the ingredients I used:

GKD Pure Luxury Card Stock in White
Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas Patterned Paper
GKD City of David Stamp Set for Star
GKD Christmas Joy Stamp Set
Spellbinders Fleur de Lis and Square Dies
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Copic Markers
Ribbon from my Stash

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your lovely comments. Stay tuned for another post in a few.........
