Gold and Silver Christmas

It's time for a new Anything Goes Challenge at 7Kids College Fund!
Our theme for this challenge is Silver and Gold! LOVE!!!!

I followed the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch 
to make my card.

First , I embossed the right side of the card with a snowflakes folder.  I stamped the sentiment  (Peace Joy Love-Lawn Fawn) in the upper left corner with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I dribbled some gold embossing powder around the sentiment and melted it with my heat gun. Very cool effect!

The Tim Holtz Tattered poinsettia was cut twice. Once with vellum and and once with gold glittery card stock. I sprinkled Stampendous Shabby White fran-tage embossing powder on the vellum leaves and carefully melted it with my heat gun. So pretty!!!! I just loved the way the poinsettia looks IRL! So I made the stars the same way! The stars were cut out with the Tim Holtz Stacked Stars die. I cut the gold snowflakes with my new Simon Says Stamps snowflakes. These dies are so cute!!! 
I really like the way my gold and silver card turned out!
