CFC #12 Clean and Simple - Almost...LOL

It is time for another Crafty Friends Challenge - this week Beate  is our hostess and she has challenged us to make  a CAS make it clean and simple project~  I have to be honest and say this is nore of a challenge for some of us than others! LOL!  But I will see what I can do - no promises though!

For my card I have used the Penny Black® Inc. Hanging Treasures stamp set designed by NinaB Designs. The image is embossed using Tuskineko Gold Embossing Powder and cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the 2011 Heirloom Ornaments Nestabilities® .

The sentiment is also embossed using Tuskineko Gold Embossing Powder and cut out using the Back to Basics Tags Shapeabilities®.  After cutting and embossing, the Die is used as a Stencil before the tag is removed from the Die.  I have used Antique Linen ink for the sponging.

The  ornament and tag are layered into the embossed background using foam tape - I have used the Regal M-Bossabilites. 

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Christmas Sparkle
Catch The Bug - Anything goes
Crafty Calendar - White Christmas with the option of something Metal
Craftymess Challenge - Vintage Christmas
Alphabet Challenge - V for Vintage
ATCs & Cards With Attitude - Anything Goes
