Say it IN.....

It's time for another fun filled challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps! Isn't this a great color combo? Love it! I have 2 cards to share with you today.... one I really like , one I really don't like! So I will show the one I don't really care for first!
I used Rround for Christmas and Holly Branch for the sentiment. My card base is early espresso layered with very vanilla and embossed certainly celery. My ornament has several of the images from Round for Christmas and was distressed , then I sponged so saffron around the edges.
For this card I use whisper white as a card base layered with daffodil delight and certainly celery. I embossed my main panel with some pine trees... don't know the name of this embossing folder )0= I then stamped the background in early espresso  using  background by design 6. My ornaments are from Ornamental Christmas. I love how this one turned out (0= You still have time to follow the blog hop and have a chance to win Round for Christmas! Be sure and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with:

I don't know whether I like the ornament or the embossing better! They are lovely!

I like them both and especially the color combo. Embossing adds so much elegance to cards and I need to do more of that. Sure glad I don't have to pick just one..LOL
