Bells & Boughs/A Very Merry Christmas to You

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I have had this waffle paper for some time and nothing seemed to call its name until I saw this sketch from stamping 411.  And, for some reason it reached out and grabbed me and I knew it was the sketch I needed to use the waffle paper.  And, by using the waffle paper, I was able to use it for the challenge today at SU only challenges.  I was so excited.  The card actually looks better when it is sitting right in front of you.  For the stamped image in the center, I actually used the gold embossing powder for the stamped image and then used markers to fill in around it.  I was a little worried at first that I might have messed it up, but when I finished rubbing the color off the embossing, I actually liked the effect.  Both the sentiment and the image are popped up using stampin' dimensionals.
