Merry Monday Christmas Challenge

           Merry Monday #132 and Simon Says Wednesday
           Snowflakes, Neutral Colors and Dry Embossing!

Well I thought that I would try another challenge for the first time, since I am rocking out Christmas cards.  It is nice to have some direction.  This Challenge wants you to use neutral colors and snowflakes and dry embossing. 
                                        Here is the card that I did using that direction.

The base layer is Kraft paper and the top layer is Chocolate Kiss, both GKD
I dry embossed the base with a snowflake folder from Cuttlebug. The top layer is die cut with my new Scalloped Borders Two.  I actually cut two borders and layered one on top of the other.  It looks nice, and I will probably be doing more of that. Next I cut snowflakes form vellum and used Sticky Stuff embossing powder and Ranger Distress Stickles.  I placed a pearl in the center of each one. 
Such a different Christmas in this color, but I think I like it.
I will be entering this card in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge,  anything goes.
Thanks as always for stopping by and I do appreciate any comments.
