Three Card Challenges

I was inspired by three challenges this week:

Make a Christmas card inspired by the picture

Make a card inspired by this layout

Create a project using a rubber or clear stamp
I think I've owned this wreath stamp for...7 years and this is my first time using it!
Also my first time getting to use my embossing paste I ordered from Simon Says!

Embossing paste lines, Chalkboard look, wreath and sparkly bow 

Dry embossed paper with tag cut out, black showing through, wreath stamp and red bow

Sorry not the best pictures at 10pm but thanks for the challenges! It was fun and feels good to use supplies I've never used before.
