Friends with Flair Blog hop

Happy Friday!! I welcome you to my blog for the Friends with Flair Blog Hop. The card I made for today is a little out of my comfort zone, but that's good to do every now and then. I chose a color combo from My Sketch Worlds card challenges. Out of the five colors below you had to chose at least three. The green in my card didn't photograph well. I am using this card at Sisterhood of Scrap for day #10 of 25 days of cardmaking-embossing. The stars are heat embossed with glittery gold embossing powder. There is still time to get in on this contest. Check it out here. This card also qualifies for the following challenges:
Simon Says-sparkle (stars have glitter embossing powder on them)
The Craft Pad-Christmas sparkle
Paper Sundeas-Ribbon and embossing
Crazy for Challenges-Christmas card
Ellephantastic Challenge-Christmas card
No time to Stamp-nontraditional colored Christmas card
ABC Christmas Challenge-X for Xmas
Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies: Ribbon and brown cardstock-unknown, white cardstock by The Paper Co; gold paper by Creative Memories, green patterned paper by Paper Pizazz; stamps by Unity (Stylin' stars and Christmas Bough); ink by Memento, Ranger Distressing ink and Versamark; embossing powder by Stampendous. Have a great weekend.
