Christmas Cutie!

I'm back with another Christmas Card Challenge! It's already #5. Just think if I (you, we) started with challenge #1 we would all have 5 cards completed. Since this is the first challenge of the month they are even giving a prize away.
This is a new image I purchased from Joan's Garden at the end of the season. I just totally fell in love with it. Now that I colored it I want to make more cards with this image.
On with the challenge ...... the only requirements are to make a Christmas Card of course LOL and the other is to emboss. It can be dry embossing, heat embossing or any type of embossing folder.
So I used my Forest Branches cuttlebug eb folder with Gina K's Kraft card stock once it was embossed I rubbed Tim Holtz's Dried Marigold straight from the pad over the branches a few times. I was trying to get the look of straw. The image was colored with copics. I made the moon by punching out a circle and the just a bit in on the punched circle I punched a smaller circle to create a moon shape.
That will be it for today. I have to work tonight and then again at 5am in the morning I hope to have a scrapbook page and card by sometime tomorrow. We will see?
Have a great rest of your day.
