It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas...In September

I used my one and only set of Just Rite Stampers again for this Card.  I just love these images and when I get enough pennies saved, I am sure I will have more of them.  For the challenge this week you were supposed to do Christmas and Glitter.  I was working on this card since mid-week so was really surprised to find it fit the challenge without even knowing what it would be.  I mixed black and silver embossing poweder together and added holographic glitter to give it that marcasite look.  I love it, however you can't see the sparkle and shine in my picture.  Believe me it is really there.  Also the paper is silver glittered.

This is just FABULOUS, Sally! Very clever way to do your sentiment -- like your thinking out of the box. I have a limited supply of JR stamps (and pennies too), so will have to put my "thinking cap" on to achieve one for this week myself!

Love this, what did you use for the curved border around the two stamp images? How did you do that?
