Holiday Greetings!!

The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the current challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenge Blog.  This week the challenge begins with the letter "E" which stands for Embossing & Embellishments!  We would like to see your cards with 3 different embellishments & some kind of embossing.   For my card I used one of my favourite Stamping Boutique images "Snowman Sign".
I love that the sign is blank so that I can put whatever sentiment I like on it.  I chose to use a rub-on sentiment from Deja Views for this card.  I coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I used chalk to shade the background and add some rosy cheeks.  Even the paper I used on this card was from my Deja Views paper pack.  My embossing was done with my snowflake embossing folder & cuttlebug & my 3 embellishments are my red square brads, ribbon & red rhinestones!

I hope you play along too!!  Don't forget that any card created with a The Stamping Boutique image can be entered into our monthly contest for your chance to win free digi images over the TSB Challenge Blog.
