*SweetstStamps #125

Good morning sweeties!!
I can't believe Tuesday is here already!!
We have had such a busy week, that time has just buzzed by us.

So today at SweetStamps, it's time for another challenge theme week. 
This week, we would like to see:
Christmas Parchment
 The more I do the parchment craft, the more and more I love it!!
For my card today, I am using Bells with Bows 880 and Merry Christmas Script 954.
I stamped Bells with Bows on the parchment paper, using the white dye ink
Turned my parchment paper over and embossed the image with a fine point stylus. 
I then created shading with a bigger ball point stylus and used the grid plate to add pattern. 
The Merry Christmas Script is stamped with glue and I poured Glitter Ritz "Dark Gold" over it, once it dried.  I had to take a side view of the card, just so that you can see the glitter. 
The patterned paper is from BoBunny: Father Christmas Collection.
