Christmas in August

I stopped at an independent stamping store yesterday, and I found some beautiful Penny Black Christmas stamps.  I sat down to play with them right away, and here is what I came up with.

Isn't that embossing powder pretty?  There is not much to this card, but the stamps are so pretty!!  I used Fancy Pants Christmas Magic paper; Judikins White Diamond embossing powder; Penny Black stamps

EDIT:  Now my blogging friend Laurel (go visit - she is amazing and has been a tremendous source of inspiration for me!) let me know that this card fits some challenges, so I am going to enter it into Keep it Simple!, Paper Sundaes, and Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge.  I am so glad she tells me about these places because I am always looking for new challenge sites!!  Yippee!!
