Christmas Wishes - Tapestry background

The tapestry background was made as follows:
1.  Sponge Early Espresso randomly on card stock
2.  Sponge Cherry Cobbler randomly on card stock
3.  Fill in remaining spaces by sponging Wild Wasabi
4.  With White Craft ink, stamp images from Silhouette Sentiments
5.  Apply versamark over entire  coloured card stock and emboss with clear embossing powder.  Repeat this step once.

Stampin Up markers were applied directly to the stamp.  I used the colours Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke, with Daffodil Delight in the center.
 I used the 2 3/4" scallop circle punch to punch out the image, the edges of which were sponged with 2 colours:  Wild Wasabi and Cherry Cobbler.  I lightly brushed Early Espresso over the entire surface of the image to make it blend better with the background.
Here are the components of the rest of the card:
Stamps: Silhouette Sentiments, Gifts of Christmas
Inks: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, & the following markers (Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, and Daffodil Delight)
Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Accessories: Polka dot embossing folder, word window punch, modern label punch, 2 3/4" scallop circle punch, 3/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin dimensionals
