KSS Ten Minute Card - Embedded Background

Today's challenge is fast and fun! Use your Kitchen Sink images to stamp a background panel for your card and then dry emboss it. Finish off the card with a crisp, clean sentiment panel. My samples are all Christmas, but feel free to use any KSS images and sentiments you desire. Embedding the images by dry embossing makes for a colorful and textured background for any occasion!
