Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 
I hope you had lots of good food, family and good napping!
And of course...good stamping! And now Christmas will be here before we know it!   So I made a Christmas card for our new color challenge starting this week at CR84FN.

I loved making this card because I loved working with our colors this week at CR84FN!

Burgundy ~ Gray ~ Cream

I used a stamp set and matching dies (Heartfelt Creations) that I have had in my stash for a very long time. I heat embossed each petal with silver embossing powder (SU). 

Please ignore my messy desk

This card is just one big compilation of all kinds of dies and stamp sets.

This is gorgeous! It's very lush without being over-embellished. Interpreting "gray" as silver really worked out well.
