Well, I started the weekend yesterday in a glitter mode and I'm still there today.  This time
it's gold glitter on a card for 52{Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Christmas trees are the
theme for this challenge.  I'm also entering this card in the All That Glitters is Gold
Challenge in The Moxie Fab World.

Here's what I did.


The Christmas tree stamp is from Hot off the Press. I stamped it with gold ink on white
 card stock, heat embossed with gold embossing powder and fussy cut it and popped
 with some foam dots. I also stamped and heat embossed the border strip on white with
 gold  ink and embossing powder. The stamp used is from Stampabilities and called Ornate.
 I placed the strip on a piece of purple metallic card stock that I border punched with the
 EK Success Acanthus punch. I used the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die set to frame
 the tree. Finished up  with some gems and some glittered stickers for the greeting.
 Thanks for taking a look!
