Gold Embossed Season's Greetings - Giveaway Card

Good Morning Everyone

I'll be heading off to Creative Expressions HQ today for a retailer demonstration day with my colleagues from Creative Expressions,..

I'll be demonstrating my new Christmas Holly Collection of stamps, paper pads and my 6 new Cosmic Shimmer colours .. should be fun!
(you'll be able to get the paper pads and cosmic colours from my website this week)

I've been so busy these last few weeks that I haven't done a giveway card (shocking, I know), so, I am going to give away one of my favourite new samples of a card I made using my new Christmas Holly Decorative Frame and Insert Frame stamps,..

Now, this 8x8 card took me a fair bit of time, what with all the embossing and glittering and I'm heading off soon so I won't give details of how I made it today, I'll do that over the next few days,..

I'll tell you what I used though...
(they are all links to the products on my www to, in case you 'need' to purchase them) :-)

Sentimentally Yours Christmas Holly Flourishes A5 Stamp Set
Sentimentally Yours Christmas Holly Decorative Frame  Stamp - Lattice
Sentimentally Yours Insert Frame Stamp - Season's Greetings
Cosmic Shimmer Detail Embossing Powder - Gold
Sue Wilsons' Stick Pin Elements

And here's the card :-)

And here's a little close up of the lovely lattice in the stamps :-)

To be in with a chance of winning this card, you must be a follower of my Blog and leave a comment on this post,.. The draw will close at 9am next Monday (27th July) and I will choose a winner randomly at that time.

Suzanne - I haven't forgotten you, just been really busy! I'll get your winning card off to you tomorrow :-)

Remember: you can 'Pin' any of these photos to your own Pinterest Boards (or Facebook etc),.. just hover your mouse over the photo's and it gives you little buttons with various options of places to share the photos etc 

Good Luck!

Happy Crafting!
