Simple Gold Elegance

This is my post on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today!!

Hello Classy Friends!
Diane here with you today to share my latest challenge project
for our Trim The Tree challenge, which is 
to make a tree using  gold or silver.


I used a creamy card stock for my base and embossed it with a
Darice Doily Lace embossing folder.
I layered a beautiful die (one of my all time favorites) from 
It was popped up with JOY! Foam Pads Large


The tree was cut with a Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree
from the gorgeous, and I mean gorgeous Super Gold Metallic paper.
The photo does not do it justice online.
It is a 111#  card stock.  Very sturdy and very metallic!
I decorated my tree with Queen and Co. Gold Rock Candy.
These are covered with glitter sparkle, perfect for the holiday season!!


To finish, I added a sheer ribbon bow.

We would love to have you join our challenge....
