Home for Christmas

I've got another Christmas card to share tonight. 
I stamped this Impression Obsession image with Versamark and then heat embossed it using The Powder Keg Tanzanite embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Lizzie Anne Designs Holiday Lane set.  The Nestie border is cut out of Wausau Pearlescent.  I used a strip of Michael's grosgrain ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Majestic Blue on the pearlescent paper, punched out and popped up on the SU! blue punch out.  The snowflakes (MFT die) are also made with the pearlescent paper, popped up with 3M foam tape and topped off with a Swarovski crystal.  I used the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Created with Love - Christmas Blues
Songbird Challenges - A Deeper Shade of Blue
Victorine Originals - Blue & White
Hiding in My Craft Room - Blue & White
Thanks for stopping by!
