52 Christmas Card Challenge and Unity Friends with Flair

Happy Friday!  Well I missed the cut off time for the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown but I'm still in time for the Friends with Flair Challenge.  The challenge was a Recipe Challenge {Monochromatic. CAS. Ribbon and Rhinestone}. I'm not sure I have the CAS part down.


I started by embossing the white cardstock and trimming it down so that I am really close to where the embossing starts.  For my stamped images I cut my squares at 1 1/4" then stamped and attached to the inside of the embossed piece. 


I left the inside plain and just inked around the edges. 

Thanks for stopping by.
