ABC Christmas Challenge - E, F & G are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Carol is the host and the themes are:

'E is for Embossing'
'F is for Freebie'
'G is for Gold'

Carol has kindly donated a prize for the lucky winner of this challenge:

On my 'E is for Embossing' card, I used a stamp that I recently picked up in a charity shop...called 'Baubles Flourish' by Indigo Blu. I stamped it on to a navy card blank using Versamark ink, along with a sentiment made using words from the 'Everyday Messages' set by Happy Little Stampers, then heat embossed it all using 'High Heels' embossing glitter by WOW.

On my 'F is for Freebie' card, the 'freebie' element is some snowflake backing paper that came free with a craft magazine. I used it as a background for some sweet Penny Black hedgies from the 'Christmas Hugs' set. I tore a snippet of white card to make some snowy ground, then matted everything on to some silver glitter card.

On my 'G is for Gold' card, I dusted off an old Cuttlebug snowflake die, and cut a snowflake from some gold glitter card. I embossed a piece of white card using my Tim Holtz 'Falling Snow' folder for the background...heat embossing a Lili of the Valley sentiment along the bottom in gold. I matted it all on to some gold mirror card before adding it to my card blank.

I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:

Three beauties! Such clean embossing on the blue card base - well done! Your hedgies are perfectly sweet, and the final card so elegant.
