Warm Winter Wishes

Hi!  I'm back tonight with a Christmas/Winter card.

I used a sketch from Simply Stampin' Challenge.  The stamp set is new this season from Stampin' Up!  It's called Scentsational Season and you can buy a die set to go with it (which I did).  I stamped the image using Versafine Olympia and the steam with Gold Encore.  The sentiment from Papertrey was stamped with Versamark and Encore (ink with Versamark, then add the gold ink on top), then embossed with translucent embossing powder.  You can't tell from the photo, but it gives it a wet appearance.   DP is Wassail from Basic Grey and cs is from Stampin' Up!
I am also entering the following challenges:
Stamp and Create - Winter Wonderland

Critter Sketch - embossing
House of Gilli - wet or dry embossing
Thanks for stopping by!
