Another Christmas Card

I used one of the other Christmas trees that I had stamped and embossed to make a quick card for another Kitchen Sink Stamps challenge.

I made this one for Maria's challenge. She asked us to use something that we had perhaps had put away and had never used (or had rarely used). I purchased the iridescent poweder from SU at least two years ago and never used it! So my card qualifies for this challenge since I used the iridescent powder for the first time! :D I liked this challenge since it got me to use something that I was a little nervous to use. It did get kinda messy - just don't tell my hubby. He HATES gitter. LOL!

Here's my card:

Gosh, it's hard to find an angle so you can see the embossed part shine! It really does shine in person when you move it around in the light.

See? It really is a different card. :) I think I like them both. Do you have a preference?

Thanks for stopping by!

I think they are BOTH beautiful! Love the way you used the brads on one, and the scalloped paper on the other! Yeah for you for using those goodies that have been tucked away! :D How to keep the iridescent powder from getting all over?? ... you don't! LOL! You just live with the sparkle! LOL! :D MY DH teases me by saying... "I see tinker bell stopped by today!", as he wipes the sparkles from my face! :D

Thanks for playing along with us! :D

They are both wonderful! I like the pretty scalloped border on the green one and the rhinestone bling on the red one.
