Dreaming of a white Christmas.......

let's face it aren't we all dreaming of white Christmas?  at least as a child I always did so could have extra days off from school but now as an adult it is fine too, because we are retired and don't have to go out soooooooo let it snow.
I'm entering this card for the challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges for their dreaming of a white Christmas challenge that doesn't have to be white. 
Had fun making this card at my friend's house with her new Penny Black stamps and believe it or not......embossing powder!  Yes, my friends I embossed the poinsettia.  Now my friends who know me, know that I rarely get out my embossing powder anymore but it was fun for a change.  So if you haven't used your embossing powder in years get it out it still gives that "wow!" effect.  Of course, I used my Ranger distress inks to do all the coloring.
