I sponged the same green and red as the image, and added Antique Linen Distress ink plus some Versacolor Gold pigment, then heat-set it with a heat-gun ready for the next step. Using my gold pigment ink, I roughly went around all the edges of the cardstock, then dumped on some gold embossing powder and heat-set it. If you don't heat-set the sponging before you run the gold ink around the edges, some of the gold embossing powder will catch on the rest of the card where you have sponged - which is OK if that's what you want - but I didn't - I only wanted the gold embossing around the edges.
Once I had done all that, then I added the sentiment (if you add the sentiment before the sponging, it doesn't stand out as well as it gets covered by all the sponging).
And into the Saturday Challenge Blog - Challenge #112 of Christmas - nice and easy.
And, lastly into the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #133 of a Christmas card.
