Another Card Challenge for Verve Stamps

Here is another card challenge I did. This one is for Verve Stamps. Every week for the month of November they had a card sketch. At the end if your name was picked you won  January new sets that are being released. This is week #1. I started off with Blue Metallic paper from Michael's, layered with Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding'. Using a fern stamp from the set "Forever in our Hearts" and using blue ink from Clearsnap. I stamped 2 or 3 times without reinking my stamp leaving a graduation of color. Taking a darker blue I stamped some darker images and then inked my edges. I cut out rectangle piece of cardstock from the same 'Figgy Pudding' and did the same. Stamped an ornament using the same paper from the set "Ornamental Christmas" ran it thru an embossing folder called Square Lattice from Stampin'Up. Took my blue inks and inked the raised portions of the embossing folder. Stamp the saying from the same set using Black Crafters ink from Clearsnap and embossed it using Black embossing powder. Punched it out using Marvy uchida scalloped punch again inked the edges.  Used Magenta silver peel offs for the cording and retired silver ribbon from Stampin'Up.
