Joy to the world

Another card using up one of the ready gold foiled card blanks that I've had for ages, this time inking the Clarity sentiment stamp with versamark and heat embossing with detail gold. The flower in the middle of the O is a sticker that's been in my Christmas box for ages.

This is another card for this week's facebook Sunday's with Santa: embossing.

Once again, this was a difficult card to photograph because of the flash, which is why it's taken at a funny angle.

This is for:
