HOC November Challenge

Hello all! It's a new month and that means a new challenge at
This month we have a sketch challenge going on.

Use the sketch to create a card in any style you choose.
As always you have all month to link up
and be sure to check each week and see what
the different design teams came up with.

My card is in the Classic and Elegant style.

I decided to use some of my Dazzles stash for this one.
Here are some close ups.

I took 3 different sizes of the stickers and backed them with
 red and black card stock and fussy cut.
Then I layered with foam tape.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the main panel
and a Darice embossing folder for the red border.
The oval was cut with Sizzix framelits dies and the
swirls I added were cut with a Sizzlits die.
The greeting is a sticker I placed on a 
Taylored Expressions label die and I finished by
adding the jewell dazzles on the embossed areas.
