Merry & Bright

Hello Friends & Followers!  I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to make a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
I decided to use their Seasons of Love - Tags set and some metallic paper by American Crafts to create this card:
(Holiday card count - 20, eek!  I usually have more like 100 by now!!  I better get crackin'!)  My card is actually red & silver, but for some reason a lot of folks think I used gold...  I think Martha Stewarts' holiday stars border punch coordinates so nicely with this stamp, don't you?  I will say, it is a little tricky trying to heat emboss on that metallic paper, it is really slippery and wants to curl when hit with the heat gun.  I know this is simple, but I like how it turned out.
     This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
     Thanks for looking!  I hope you have a good evening!

The star patterned border works beautifully with your star image. The gold and red color scheme is so elegant and is perfect for a Christmas card. It's a fab clean design!
