Emerald on Gold for Christmas and a Look Back!

ODBD stamps, Jingle Bells, Holly Wreath, ODBD Custom Cathedral Window and Border Die, Grace Nywening designer
Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs  September Release. 
  This image is from Holly Wreath, and the sentiment is from Jingle Bells.  I also used a border die from the ODBD Custom Cathedral Window and  Border die set. 
I used a vanilla base and matted with brushed gold.  I stamped my image on brushed gold with VersaMark and heat embossed with Pearlescent Emerald Green embossing powder from Stampendous.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing for the holly stripes in the background, and a Sizzix folder for the poinsettias on the smaller panel.  I hand cut my sentiment to place it on an iridescent ribbon that looks sometimes green and sometimes red.  I added little gold pearls (Recollections) to the wreath and kept the card simple.  I can't capture it well in the photo, but I do love how this card came out in real life.

It's that time of the year again, Grace! Beautiful card! I've not tried heat embossing on my metallic cardstock. Will have to do that!
