Morning everyone.....well with just two weeks now untill the big day,hope you are all ready!....
Todays card is my DT card for SKETCH SATURDAY....fabby sketch once again this week from JO.....thanks hun,and we are sponsored this week by SIMON SAYS STAMP....great prize up for grabs for one lucky winner :0).
No colouring on my card today,decided to do alittle heat embossing...well i wanted to use this stamp and thought it was the perfect technique for it.The stamp is by La Blanche and i got it in a set from QVC many moons ago but i hadn't got round to using so many other stamps in my draw!
The script cardstock is Kanban,the gold cardstock is DCWV and the deep red leather look is from stash.
The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs...i love the font on this stamp,i've also heat embossed this with the same Hampton Art embossing powder as i've used on the image.
The corners around the image which i've used to form a frame are from a Marianne Designs die.
I've used some Petaloo "Sweet Petites"flowers and punched out some leaves using a L-Em punch.
The tassel,ribbon and self adhesive pearls are from stash.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:-
WILD ORCHID CHALLENGE (Mon)...."Old fashioned Christmas"
ALLSORTS CHALLENGE....Last minute Christmas.

Well that's about it for today....just to say thank you to all who took up the challenge with us last week and hope you can all join us again this week....
Have a great day and all the best if you're heading out Christmas shopping today :0)
Take care
