Woodgrain Wishes

It has been a while since I participated in a Merry Monday challenge, but this week I am back and ready to get my Christmas on!

I love my woodgrain embossing folder, so I pulled it out as well as some neglected Christmas embellishments, and went to work.

Very simple- and it first glance it doesn't look too festive, but the sentiment and bird are both from Christmas collections so I think it still counts as a Christmas card!

I inked the sentiment in three different colours to create a gradient effect on the writing, and the bird and frame are popped up on dimensionals.

I am also entering this into the Just Add Ink Frames challenge.

Supplies used:
Creative Memories: White cardstock, Noel Paper Embellishments, Shape Maker System, Square Punch Cartridge, Foam Squares.
Stampin' Up: Always artichoke cardstock and ink, Soft Suede cardstock and ink, Gumball Green ink, Woodgrain embossing folder, Many Merry Messages stamp set.
