Errr Christmas Again lol

Morning it is our 49th wedding anniversary today just say waiting for my medal to arrive lol.
I also have another Christmas card to share--I won the "Christmas Candle"image from Sheepski and I coloured it with promarkers.
I stamped and gold embossed the backing card with a Penny Black poinsettia stamp and also embossed the edges using a new very juicy embossing pad which ended up a little thick and messy in places but I am happy with that,the poinsettia was a die from Creative Dies,gems from stash.
