Christmas Sparkle Card

Hi, everyone!  I hope you all had a great holiday.

This week's theme at the Less is More blog is "Sparkle."

Here is my interpretation of the challenge:

The sparkle elements are the Christmas trees, which I embossed in gold glitter.

The sentiment "Merry Christmas" is stamped in red ink, and then stamped offset in Versamark.  I then used clear embossing powder for that shadow effect.

Here is a list of the materials that I used for this card:
Kraft card base (Recollections)
Very Vanilla card stock (Stampin' Up)
Tree (Happy Winter, Stampin' Up)
Merry Christmas sentiment (Greetings 4 U, Stampin Up)
Versamark ink
Riding Hood Red ink (Stampin' Up)
Clear embossing powder (Stampin' Up)
Gold embossing glitter (Stampendous)

I'm entering this card to the Less is More Week 148 challenge.  The rest of the entries are here.

Edited to add:
I'm also entering this card to the Crafty Cardmakers challenge, at the suggestion of Viv, the challenge host. :) (Thanks, Viv!).  Check out the other awesome clean and simple cards here.
