Golden Trees


Thought I'd give everyone a little gold and white today!  I used an Impression Obsession die and then placed some gold card stock behind the cut outs.  The sentiment (again) is from Stampabilities.  That gold ribbon......mercy me, is it ever shiny!!!  It's almost to the point of being gaudy!!   A pretty clean and simple card - and another one completed for the year.   Hopefully I'll get some of these Christmas cards addressed and mailed this weekend!


Thanks for stopping by.............

Well, Lynn, you've done it again. Given us a gorgeous, classy card to admire. The ribbon doesn't look that shiny in your photo. The gold behind your trees looks super nice. Have a great day.

Beautiful! Love the golden trees and the embossed swiss dots in the background - looks like snow falling.

Just read that you thought that the gold ribbon is almost gaudy... you have made your card rather elegant with it. Nothing you make is ever out of place.

Oh, now I must choose: blue & white, or gold & white?..Nope, can't do it! Love this one too. Liked your idea of the gold behind the IO swirly tree. Hmm...another idea! Great job on combining the elements here for a perfectly elegant card. TFS
