Here is my creative inspiration!  

I am gearing up for the Christmas holidays with my new embossing folders and die-cuts.  This CAS card is embellished with the Couture Creations Wild Holly Embossing Folder and Memory Box Snowflake Sprig Die-cut.  I inked the edges of the embossed layer with Memento Desert Sand Ink.

The snowflakes are covered with Ranger Glue N' Seal and distress glitter to add the sparkle! Some lovely gems as the final touch.
