Beautiful Blessed Season!

 Happy Thursday!  Popping in with a two cards to share today.  

I am playing along with The Card Concept inspiration Challenge and CASE this Sketch.

For my card I started with some Paper Studio 12 Days of Christmas pattern papers.  I played off of the Christmas tree in the inspiration along with some gold and red accenting.

I added some gold sparkle washi tape to the right as well as some brush gold card stock strip.  I die cut a circle using Pure Poppy card stock.

I stamped the sentiment from Penned Elegance: Christmas stamp set.  I stamped in versamark and white embossed. 

I added some tiny red stars using a die from the MIM Mini Holiday Folk Kit.  I added the Christmas tree panel to a top folding PTI select white card stock top folding card base.

For my second card I am playing along with The Fusion Challenge.  I was inspired by the dark tones and hints of gold in the inspiration photo.  I also loved the sketch.  

Again, I used some of the Paper Studio 12 Days of Christmas pattern paper pad.  I added a gold strip of washi tape down the right side.  

I stamped the sentiment from Sentiment Staples: Christmas Mini stamp set using Pure Poppy ink.  I layered the ornaments and added them to the page with some foam tape and gold thread.

I finished my card with a few tiny gold pearls.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
