Christmas Card with Vellum

Another "Christmas in July" card...this one using vellum with heat-embossed gold on a lovely frame.
I colored the frame with some pastel Noir markers but the ink didn't take to the vellum too well, got kinda blotchy...but once it dried I like the effect okay...I think.

It is very hard to see but there really IS a layer of vellum on this card!
The gold frame is on it and an oval is cut out of the middle and the ornament is stamped on the cardstock background. I added a "halo" of green in the same oval shape (but bigger) around the ornament for a little added color/interest.
