Merry Christmas!

This card is for the Inspiration Challenge (IC158) at SCS. Thanks Stef for a providing such wonderful inspiration! The inspiration site is Block Party Press. Since I still have a few more Christmas cards to do, I went through the the BPP gallery and found one item that really seemed to convey what I needed to create today. The item shown here showcases an embossed look with a white background. Now, I did opt not to do any edge distressing just focusing on the embossing. I love the combo of crisp white with red and gold. I have been doing a lot of gold embossing lately. Today's card uses a stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs
called Worship the Lord. I wanted to just focus on the serenity of the scene and the season. I embossed the image in gold and loved the look so much that I did not want to do anything else to it. I added some brushed gold cardstock which I think offers a wonderful contrast with the crisp white and lends itself to picking up the gold in the Deja View dp. I finished with a few detailing elements and was finished. I think I can mass produce a few of these.

Here is a close up of the Christmas Church. I wanted you to see that this card is very shiny and wonderful. The image is so detailed.
