Cardinal Christmas

This was for Beate's weekend sketch! I just got this set from Winter mini, the only set I really loved.
I also tried embossing using classic ink, if you dump clear e.p. quickly on classic you can get it to adhere to emboss. You have to be quick though because classic dries almost on contact. I haven't ordered any Christmas paper yet, alas SU is going to make me broke! I am loving the new taffeta ribbons in riding hood red and kiw- gorgeous!
recipe:
cs: watercolor paper, old olive, riding hood red, choc chip, ww
ink: riding hood red, brown stazon (old olive and choc chip to watercolor)
access: oval punch, clear ep, taffeta riding hood red, dimensionals.
