Joy to All

Made after watching Jennifer McGuire's latest video in her Holiday Thinking Inking classes at 2Peas - she is such an inspiration, and I couldn't wait to try her embossed paper roses.  (after they are constructed, you dip them in embossing ink and then in clear embossing powder and heat them, doing this several times until you get an enamel-look to them).  Mine are centered with a little jingle bell, a metallic flower and a gold gem.  Also, I clear embossed anything that I stamped here - the pine flourish background, the scalloped border, the sentiment, even the leaves!
Since this is done in cranberry and green, I'm also entering it into The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge #2: Red and Green.  I didn't use ribbon, but will this twine/floss count?  ;)

Supplies: red, green, and cream cardstock, green gingham printed paper, Adirondack lettuce and cranberry inks, versamark ink, clear embossing powder, Hero Arts S5247 Flourish Pine, CL288 Scallop Borders, CL460 Joy to All, jingle bell, metallic flower, gold gem, twine
