ABC Christmas I is for using Sweet Sketch Wednesday

I pulled out one of my Stampin' Up Sets for this card. It's been forever since I have used embossing powder. It's one of my favourite card making activities/tools/techniques.

I made this card for the ABC Christmas Challenge I is for Indigo, Icicles and Inspiration using the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge.



Supplies Used:
Stamps: SU Snowflake Serenade, Stampendous Sentiment
Ink: SU Black Craft
Cardstock: Metallic Blue and Metallic Silver from Cutcardstock.com
Paper: Bo Bunny Winter Frost
Accessories: Square and Snowflakes Nestabilities, SU Scallop Border Punch, SU Silver Embossing Powder

Thanks for visiting!

Wow Heidi, what a card this is awesome, I just love the embossing and I don't do it enough now days. I love the colours they look awesome together and make a lovely change from the traditional colours. Your card rocks as usual and your embellishments are great. Will you be watching the Royal Wedding? I know I am, I've booked my dear hubbies home theatre but he doesn't know it yet!!! I toasted chestnuts off our trees yesterday to make chestnut and bacon suffing for a lovely traditional roast dinner for tonight. Thought I would go over board and used the fine bone china that we use on special occasions as we hardly ever use it.
Take care and have a great weekend. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and don't forget to join us next week for our Blog Hop, become a follower if your not already and celebrate our 100th Sketch.
Hugs
