You have a week to enter and you can enter up to 3 projects. The prize for this challenge is a stamp set and crinkle ribbon bundle of YOUR CHOICE from our sponsor Mae Sunshine Designs!!

My Project for today is a Card I made.

This card was made with an INKADINKADO stamp and Tinsle Gold embossing powder by Ranger.

I mounted the stamped image on Green Card stock.

I decided to emboss the greeting inside with the same Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. I combined two stamps to make this greeting.

I decided to add the manger scene at the bottom of the inside of the card so it wasn't so blank.

I used the same patterned paper for the front cover as I did for layering behind the greeting inside. I added the plaid ribbon and bow to the front.

I added the angel with some foam tape and embossed the Peace on Earth greeting stamp from Anna Bee Designs Joy to The World stamps set. 

Thanks for hopping by make sure you hop on over to Tammy's Blog to see what she's made for you today.
