Gold Christmas


This is for the last August challenge I gave the CCEE Stampers, which is to be inspired by the word "Gold." 

I gold embossed my poinsettia and sentiment {both made by Rubbernecker};  I made a rolled ribbon flower out of gold ribbon using Beate's tutorial on Splitcoaststampers; and I used a gold leaf pen for the gold frame around the image and sentiment.

Here's a close up of the rolled ribbon flower



You can get all the details on our CCEE Stampers blog and see the creations my friends Shirley, Cindy, Joanne, and Frances made.  Maybe you'd even like to play along with us!

Wowza..what a wonderful elegant Christmas card! Beautiful.....

Your challenge....how appropriate, with the price of gold these days! I am gonna sell all my gold bars if I can find them in the basement! Shouldn't be too hard, 42,000 of them!
