Cardinal Christmas

I think the paper is from papermania, but it's a few years old so I can't exactly remember! But the image is a freebie from Becky's Place, coloured with promarkers: forest green, marsh green, ruby, poppy, slate and chestnut.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, embossed with gold powder - it shows up a lot better in person than it does on the picture, I'm still not perfectly happy with it, but it's okay - and it's embellished with some a little twine and a pearl star.

  5. Love this CAS card, the little image is coloured beautifully. I know what you mean about the gold embossing, it's always better in real life than in a photo and I'm sure it looks perfect on your card. Thanks for joining in this week at 52 CCT
