Santa Claus is Coming To Town

In early October when Mom and I visited the Simcoe Fair we saw a demonstration of embossing using Queen's Gold embossing powder. I liked that it was a toned down gold, not quite as bright as the regular gold powder.

Then my friend Pat was moving and gave me these stamps as she was cleaning house and just didn't have room for them.



Luckily a few weeks ago I was at AC Moore in Buffalo and found the Queen's Gold.

So using one of Pat's stamps and the Queen's Gold, I followed this week's sketch at 2Sketches 4 You to create this card. Love the softness of the Melissa Frances paper which inspired me to use lace and pearls!



Thanks for looking and your comments!
