Jingle Belles sketch

Have followed the sketch on Jingle Belles rock today with the colour combo
of 52 Christmas throwdown.
I found the metalic silver in this very hard as I am not a silver person
First I tried embossing the greeting with silver powder but
all of mine has sparkles in it,  then I managed to find some
silver card that I have no idea I had and it saved the day.
Ended up embossing the greeting with black powder. It is a lovely one to
emboss as it comes up so lovely and glossy.

Have never stamped up the floral stamp before or used the dies
They were "must haves"some time ago.
Amazing how must haves can remain unused for ages.

Perhaps with it warming up slightly I wil find more time to
get into my craft room which is sooo cold.

Am entering this in:
52 Christmas throwdown - Red, Black, White and mettalic silver
Jingle Belles  - Sketch
Make it Monday - Anything goes Linky party.
Just keep on creating - Christmas card

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.
