Clean and simple for CCAYR December challenge

This is my first design card for Christmas cards all year round December challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs from the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

I inked the lovely Stampotique stamp by Amy Wilson with versamark and heat embossed with metallic gold rich - straight on to the black card blank. I folded over some gold netting to wrap around the card and tie into a knot.
