Happy Holidays - Gold, Black, Vellum

Hi, Friends......

Here again with another entry into the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge for this month. I again drew inspiration from Vanessa's lovely gold and black wreath card. I have really enjoyed using these rich and elegant colors!

Do you like that DCWV Mercury Glass background???? I totally LOVE it!! This is the stack that I had to buy THREE of before I would let myself cut into the first one! Ha. I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum to make an overlay, but the underneath pattern of the Mercury Glass paper doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy stamp set
Versafine Ink in Onyx Black
Clear embossing powder
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Hollie's Festive Florals stamp set
Versamark Ink Pad
Gold embossing powder
M&C Boutique - Large Circle Frame die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
DCWV Mercury Glass Stack
Various adhesive rhinestones from stash

Hope you enjoyed this card. I have one more that I will enter into the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge. It closes tomorrow, but that still gives you time to join in, too!! Hope to see you there.
