No coloring required...

Hi guys. 
     I just wanted to pop in and share a quick & simple card that I made over the weekend.  While I was running around last week I found this really cute embossing folder by 'bringing Crafts-too you' at our local bookstore/crafts shop.   I didn't even know they sold them.  Anyway, it was really inexpensive and I liked the little hanging ornaments so I picked it up. 
     After using the embossing folder I added some VersaMark to it and some Hero Arts embossing powder to give it a bit of a glossy look to go with my base cardstock and that I used.   I think overall I really like how it turned out. 
     The embossing and the ribbon give it a little bit of dimension, but it's flat enough to put through the mail.  :O) 
     I hope you all have a great day tomorrow, and I will talk to you later. 
Hugs, Lisa G
