Tree Trimmings for Christmas

After my busy week of posting, I've missed a few days.
I've been busy with Thanksgiving preparations, but it feels so good to have time to wrap up the card I've been making and get it posted. The Tree Trimmings and Fir and Foliage 2 stamp sets from The Greetery worked so well together and I love the look! 

Stamping multiple layers for each tree was easy to line up using the Misti. I added the garlands after die cutting the trees, and embossed those in gold. The garland image has small stars, to which I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bright Gold. 
Isn't the die amazing? Another new item from The Greetery. I know this one is going to become a favorite. I backed the small panel with gold foil card stock that peeks through the delicate borders.

Happy to be playing along at The Paper Players sketch 

week, and the Just Add Ink Challenge. I chose stars and spots, but in the end there's some sparkle in there too.

Now it's time to get back to the tasks at hand. Wishing those in the USA a wonderful Thanksgiving!
