Elegant Christmas

Happy day before Thanksgiving!!  It's Wednesday so that means it's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a sketch challenge for you:
So many fun options with that one!  Here is the card I created:
 I inked up my embossing folder with a gold shimmery ink before embossing my red cardstock.  It gave a subtle but shimmery finish on the debossed parts.  You can kind of see it in the photo below.
I love this color combo; it's always so elegant and it's perfect for Christmas!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  And remember, if you "need" any of the stamps I used, there is a 10% off your entire order coupon in my left sidebar.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Sheet Music" and "Poinsettia"
Dies: Repeat Impressions "Flip Fancy Die Set"; Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large" and "Picot Circles"; Darice "Damask" embossing folder
