Vintage Christmas Rose

I love using blue and gold on Christmas cards. It's such a rich color combination and makes me think of crisp blue skies and piles of lovely snow. I embossed the image with gold embossing powder and added stickles accents for even more glitz. The vintage/weathered back ground paper provides a nice contrast to the glitzy image.

I stretched the rules a 'smidge' by using organza ribbon - organza's fabric - right? :o)
