It's 'Merry'

It's time for Challenge #3 over at Season's Greetings
Our Challenge this fortnight is - 
Always Anything Goes with the Twist
Wet & or Dry Embossing.

Here is how I made my card
using the Optional Twist
Card base is a metallic paper
to which I added  purple for my first frame
cut with a stitched die
then I embossed silver paper from an old
Cuttlebug Christmas set adding it to the frame.
I then die cut another shade of purple cs
with Spellbinders Labels 18 inking it
randomly with one of the stamps
from SU Snowburst in Memento Sweet Plum.
I showcased my Ornate Baubles from Kaisercraft
again cutting them in purple and heat embossed
them with Polysparkle Powder (which is a little hard to see)
I then got my die and penciled around the edges of the baubles
on grey shimmery paper and hand cut to add as backing.
I rounded the backs, added dimensional squares
making them pop then  added some gems.
My Merry die is cut from Lawn Fawn
which was only partially cut to fit.  

I would also like to give a BIG WELCOME
to my dear friend Cheryl Wright who is
now part of 

Thanks so much for dropping in.
Hope you will find time to play with this fun Challenge.
Pop over to see what all the Kangaroos (sorry had to say it)
have made Here and I look forward to seeing you there.
