Christmas Candle - QKR Stampede Design Team for challenge #262

This week the Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede has the optional twist of "embossing".  For me, that is a super easy challenge, as I use dry embossing frequently.  You may enter the challenge as many as 3 times.  There are two prizes (QKR digis) offered - for an entry using a QKR Stampede or Eureka image, and for an entry using any image.  Entries close at 3 pm EDT Thursday.
This card uses a QKR image called Candle as well as a QKR sentiment.  The embossing is Snowflakes.  I am disappointed in the screen appearance - IRL the glittery glow around the candle flame is much more subdued - just hard to capture in a visual.  My favorite color could change daily, but the deep red (almost burgundy) of the mats, combined with white, is a perennial favorite.

Dorothy, what a fantastic Christmas card you have made that fits in well with the Lemon Shortbread Monthly Challenge this fortnight. The embossing really sets the card off. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Lemon Shortbread Design Team Member).

Gorgeous embossing, Dorothy! I have to put on one of my DT hats to say -- I want you to know how much we appreciate you playing along in our challenge at Createful Hearts this month. Starting in October, we're going to be bi-monthly (15th and 30th) so you'll have an additional chance to play each month. See you there and good luck.
