Noel Embossed Christmas Card

I found a package of handmade paper by Black Ink on clearance at Hobby Lobby... so I HAD to buy it and I think it worked perfectly with this card. I used the sketch from the sketch challenge on Split Coast for this card. I stamped Noel with Versamark ink and embossed it with ultra fine detail gold embossing powder. The first time I embossed this stamp, I used gold glitter embossing powder and it lost a lot of the detail (see it here). I think it turned out so much better with with the ultra fine embossing powder. We learn as we go... right?
I had stamped and embossed three angels for the three squares on the bottom of this card, however they didn't work out for the size of this card. I will use them on another card today. Thanks for looking.

This is such a beautiful, (or should I say beutiful) elegant card!

Note: I didn't say "Love the colors", which is my usual response ;)

It's so pretty. The gold ep adds so much. I almost always use the extra fine stuff. I like it much better.
