A Christmas Card with New Stamps!

I've got some new Hero Arts Christmas stamps and have just started to play with some of them (Yay for new stamps!). I am entering this card for the latest challenge over Hero Arts blog. I am also linking this up to Moxie Fab World's WCMD Challenge.
I used this stamp called Aspen Festive Ornaments
This is my first card with this cling stamp. The sentiment is from Miracle of The Holidays.
MERRY Christmas to you


Card stock: Layering paper by Hero Arts, white (Recollections)
Pattern paper: Little Black Dress by Basic Grey
Stamps: Festive Ornaments by Hero Arts
Inks: VersaMark (Tsukineko), Distress Inks (Pine Needles, Fire Brick, Dusty Concord, Broken China), Tuxedo Black by Hero Arts
Embossing Powder: Stampendous (white, detailed)
Accessories: Perfect Pearl Dimensional Glue (Silver Pearl), 3-D pop dots (EK Success), pearls by Hero Arts
Tools: Distress Ink Applicator (Rangers)
 

 I hope that I will come up with more ideas on using this stamp. Until then....
Thanks for stopping by!
