Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - October 2015 - Anything goes or the option of EMBOSSING (Wet or dry)

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for October 2015 is "anything goes with the option of embossing (wet or dry)".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "embossing (wet or dry)") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.
This month our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

They are offering the very lucky winner 7 digital images of their choice from the Bugaboo Digi Stamps Store.
For my Christmas card I have used some Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage which I have had for a few years now.  I love this image so much I've had to keep it for while!!

I decided not to use any backing papers and instead used plain card stock.  For the white card I embossed a piece with my Embossalicious large dots embossing folder and a magazine freebie Christmas sentiment border.  Both I have edged with Tim Holtz's Stormy Sky distress ink.

I have finished the card off with sentiments off the decoupage sheet, satin ribbon and pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
