Share The Holiday Warmth - Simon Says Challenge

I tried something new with this card. I embossed my image in clear embossing powder and then I watercolored her. I think it has a neat effect! This card is for this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is Christmas in August! My cousin Nancy and her family, along with my Aunt Linda and her (soon to be) hubby, made me a scrapbooker's gift basket for my birthday and in it were these 3 fold cards. This is the first time I've used one and they're quite cute! I couldn't resist this little Sarah Kay stamp, "My Sweet Lily", for this one as she reminds me of my sleepy daughter on Xmas morning. I used a velum overlay on the front as well. Enjoy!
