Merry Monday Challenge #45 - Christmas Pine Cones

Hello Folks,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Sketch Challenge.  I used some very old retired Stampin' Up! stamps from 1997 and 2006 for my card this week.  I came across an old card that I made for my husband using the Pine cones and branches and that gave me the inspiration to make this card.  I stamped the images and then used Versamark and White embossing powder to add some snow.  I pieced around the circle and banner and sponged the edges.  I used the Woodgrain embossing folder for the background mat.  Finished off with some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grossgrain Ribbon, Clear Heart Button and Baker's Twine.
