Shiny Trees

Today's card was made for the challenge at The Paper Players, who are asking for a CAS card using silver or gold.  Now I mis-read those simple instructions and used silver and gold, so I hope my card still qualifies :)



I used the Winter Trees die cut with both silver and gold foil paper to create this shiny row of trees.  I mounted it using tiny little bits of foam tape so it's sitting off the card base.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and the third time in two days I've used this versatile set!



Thanks for visiting.



Products used:

Stamps:  Sweet Little Sentiments (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  White, Silver, Gold
Accessories:  Winter Trees die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a mention at Paper Players.

Thank you very much for your sweet comment on my blog. It was an emotional one to make, but I think that gets the best results.
