First group of Christmas cards done!

I used printed scrapbook paper for the backgrounds.  Bought these dies for $10 each at AC Moore.  They have their Own Embossing folders.  I am currently in a mono chromatic mood.  I did 16 of these, 4 each style as that's how manybackgrounds I an get from each sheet of paper.  Just waiting on  new stamps from Red Lead paper works to add the sentiment and maybe a tint tag or sprig of leaves to put in the doves mouth.  Next batch will be in colors.  The flower and bird are card stock wiyh perfect pearls/ pearlex powder or inca gold or paint highlights.  16 down, 50 to go! I'm thinking not everyone will get a handmade card this year!
