Season's Greetings on Halloween

I just love the elegance of this card.
I don't know about anyone else, but I always seem to overlook the cardstock selection on page 170 of the catalog. It has the gold, silver, glossy, and confetti papers.
Well, I finally bought myself some of that paper, and decided to use it. For this card I stamped the image with versamark, and then embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used some gold cardstock around it and also ran another piece of whisper white cardstock through the Big Shot with the Petals a plenty embossing folder. It was super easy to make, and is totally different from all the cutesy cards I have been making. I wanted to get a close up picture of how pretty and shiney the embossing is.
I do have to share a funny story with this card. I wasn't paying close enough attention when I went to attach the sentiment to the card, because I put it on upside down. When I went to open the card, I just laughed. So, I went to show my son how pretty the card was.....I know he could care less, but wanted him to get a good laugh too. So, he looks at it, and says, "Yeah mom, that's really pretty." I told him to open it up, and we both just started laughing. It was a good time.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a Happy Halloween!!
