Monochromatic Christmas

There's a recipe challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown this week.   This is a
good oneto help you get those Christmas cards done early this year.  I know  it's going to
help me!

 Here's what I decided to do.

I bought a whole bunch of new embossing folders a couple of weeks ago when Hobby
Lobby had them for 50% off, so I had to put one of them to use.  This one is called
Whimsical Frame by Paper Studio.  I used it to frame the Hero Arts tree image which
I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Stampendous silver tinsel embossing
powder.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Christmas greetings stamp set which I also
embossed. I added the ribbon and a bow and of course finished up with some gems.
Thanks for taking a look!
