Cricut Explore Merry Christmas card

I am so lucky that my husband has given me an early Christmas present of a Cricut Explore!!! And after a busy week of cooking, and company at Thanksgiving, I had the chance to peruse their catalog of images in Cricut Design Space, and found that I really liked this Art Deco image of merriment. The papers are Recollections gold, green and red cardstocks and Core'dinations card base red dots embossed/raised. Don't you love the vintage feel of the card? The sentiment was stamped with a VersaMark ink pad then I used red embossing powder.
Here are the challenges that gave me inspiration:
