Challenge Cards Again

Well, it is so long since I did any challenges that I thought I should get busy, especially since I have done most of my Christmas cards (and it is still November- wonders never cease!).
StampTV had a nice sketch challenge this week (STVSLSP3) and Lots to Do Forum Revisited had an embossing challenge so this one should "kill two birds with one stone" so to speak!

The sketch for the StampTV challenge is here.
I used a Christmas theme and stamped the image onto a patterned paper to give it a bit of a vintage look. The sentiment was also stamped on the same paper. I layered both onto wine card. I also edged the image with gold strips to make it stand out a little more.

The background card is embossed with a cuttlebug folder then layered onto the wine card. I layered the image with foam pads to make it stand out from the background too. The three stars are little gold brads.
