Holidays are Magical

Holidays are Magical 2013

Hello to everyone and hope you are having a dry cool week. All my friends in the south please stay dry and away from those rains, my heart goes out to everyone. Hot here today but they say it is going to cool off for the next week and I will be happy to take that. It is time again for Cards For Men challenge #15 and it is all about making a card for a guy or young man that is a Christmas card. Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen and the image I’m using is called ornament mouse and the sentiment holidays are magical. We would love for you to join us. The challenge ends August 4 2013.

On the embossing folders I hope you can see, I added metallic rub on to the embossed area gold and green. Ribbon was from the Christmas department at Hobby Lobby.

I wanted to try this. I seen it on pinterest. This is Maryann Tree die and to make it look snowy they added some of Martha Steward branch punch. I do like it but next time I will add less branches.
