Emboss it at Sassy Cheryl's

I have the honor of being the hostess for our challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's. So, I chose 'embossing'... of any type. I am trying to concentrate solely on Christmas cards, although the need for them seems to shrink year after year due to the convenience of the internet.

By the way, we're looking for a guest designer to join us for the month of December. So one lucky person will be selected from the entries of the challenges for the remainder of November (Nov 15, 22 and 29). If you are so inclined, perhaps you will join us and try your hand.

Anyway, this happy duo has been sitting in my 'to-do' pile for some time now so it was long overdue for some lovin' and this was the perfect challenge.

I added some textured snow to the circle as well as the punched snowflakes, then added some silver brads.  If anyone can suggest something for better picture taking, I sure would love to hear it. This looks so much better in real life and my pictures sure look awful lately.
Have a fantastic day, friends.. and thanks so much for stopping by.
