I let myself be tempted by the Gift Bag Punch Board when it came on sale during Stampin' Up!'s Holidays Extravaganza promotion. I wanted to give it a try when it came in, so I picked the Color Throwdown combo #421, the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #76 (Embossing), Create with Conie and Mary #435 (the sketch) and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Anything Goes).
I paired three different stamp sets on this creation: It's a Celebration for the background (the fireworks), Here's to Cheers (the wine and glasses) and Love Sparkles for the sentiment (a new stamp set from the upcoming Occasions catalogue I received as a gift at the OnStage event). I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create two shapes. The embossed the background one with the Festive Embossing Folder, and I used two squares of different sizes for my main image. The sentiment was embossed in Silver powder on black cardstock, and Silver sequins were added to the background fireworks.
