Hello Friends!

This fancy schmancy new Impression Obsession image by artist Kalani Allred  is called Chandelier E14060  .
It was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Gold Zing! embossing powder over card stock that was stamped with Cover a Card French Text CC151 in Versamagic Cloud White.  I added a border using Border Duo 3 Set DIE019-V  and some black velvet ribbon. The sentiment Light Up A Room B14062 was embossed  and punched out with a circle punch.  To finish it off I  embossed a Maya Road Red Heart pin with the same gold embossing powder to make it match.  I have been having troubles taking photos lately, but this is really sparkly in real life.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
