Gold Penny Black Starlit Christmas Tree

Good evening after a very busy afternoon running errands. This will be a short post, and I'll apologize right up front because I have so many email comments that I need to return visits. Just FYI, on the comments regarding the Word Verification, I will not be returning visits on those specifically ...but will do my best to get round to the others. I hope everyone has either gotten the aggravation fixed, or learned to ignore the box and make & publish the comment anyway. The comments do seem to be going through ok.

Here's a quick card that has been in the works for a while, and no good reason that it didn't get finished sooner.


- PBlack Starlit inked with Versamark, heat embossed with Ranger Queen's Gold. A WoL gold pen added small trunk.

- Snippet of lightweight gold glitter paper serves as a faux mat, (traced around outside of the S/B pennant die that cut the tree). The center of the mat was cut out with a smaller die from the set and ready for another project.

- White paper embossed a Nellie Snellen Christmas oval EF, which was inked with Brillance Galaxy Gold before embossing.

- Gold glitter ribbon and Starform sentiment sticker. Easy.

Ya'll have a wonderful evening. Tomorrow & Thursday will both be out-of-the-house days for us, so hope to catch up on visiting ASAP. Big hugs & God Bless. Thanks for stopping in this evening.

This card is so very elegant. The gild tree shape is gorgeous and looks wonderful on that embossed background.

There was only one spot available in the card group and if I had waited till after the move, it would have been gone. Luckily they did not schedule me to bring a card kit till March!I
I wanted to make friends in the new neighbourhood and several of these ladies live in walking distance from my new house! Yay!
Best of all they are happy to just keep it to once a month for the getogethers and just email each other in between. My old neighbour wanted to get together nearly every day and that was too much for me!
