Gold and texture cards

Hello friends, I am in mood for crafting today, made these 2 cards.
The first one up is a simple Christmas card with gold embossing. I used Kaisercraft bauble and snowflakes stamps, some I haven't inked up yet. Used the gold embossing to heat emboss, and the sentiment is from the same set. I added a gold string to the bauble, and lifted the panel up with foam adhesive.

I hope this card fits well with the theme.

The second one is a CASE for Suchi's card at STAMPlorations. I was inspired by the black and white with the pop of colors. I used my twine stamping technique to get a texture for my card, I did masked and stamped the twine on one half. Added a die cut butterfly, which I sponged with some different color inks. The sentiment is from WPlus9, I think the sentiment goes well with the texture. I like this card very much, specially the texture.

Leaving with 2 pictures of sunset, which I captures from the car, on the way to my son's football game yesterday evening.  I had to ask hubby to slow down on the bridge for one of the shots ;) Sunset is in China, yup can see another country from where we live :D I love clicking sunset pictures, I don't know why.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
