it`s ok it is not a trick of the light, it is a different card ~ thought i would try again with the same image, from last week!!
used the wonderful sketch from SUNDAY SKETCH AND STAMP #34
OUR CREATIVE CORNER ~" to use embossing" ~ (links on my sidebar)
used that craft individuals image, crafts~too stars embossing folder, sizzix corners and finished with glitter. mmmmmmm little happier with this simple/easy to post/40+ xmas card. (may do half and half with the other card)
