Whimsy Stamps - November Challenge

I have another Christmas creation to share with you today, this is my second post for today, if you'd like to see my other one, simply scroll down or click HERE.

It's time for a new Whimsy Stamps challenge, and this month the challenge is "Christmas". We have a wonderful Whimsy prize to give away, so be sure to check out the post and take a look at what the rest of the team created. You don't have to use a Whimsy stamps to enter.

For my card today I used an new stamp from Whimsy's Lizzy Love designs - Stars and Baubles Background. It was just released last week. I thought it was perfect for a CAS Christmas creation.

The dark card stock I used is actually elegant eggplant by Stampin Up. No idea why it looks navy or black in the photo, no matter what I tried it just came out looking like this. 
I heat embossed the image using detail silver embossing powder. Cut it to shape and then added silver card stock strips next to the image panel. The sentiment was stamped using elegant eggplant ink by SU to match my card stock. I added a few sequins for embellishments and matted onto a white card base. 
Sentiment is from the set "Holiday Cheer" released a couple years ago, but always a favorite! 

I am also playing along here:
Inkspirational - anything goes with silver 
Brown Sugar –  No Patterned Paper
Crafting-With-Friends - Always Anything Goes
Creative Fingers -    Always Anything Goes (W2 of 2)
Simply Papercraft -   Always Anything Goes
Wags 'n Whiskers -  Embossing (not sure if this qualifies as I didn't use an animal)

Have a great day everyone!!
