Red and gold

Good morning/evening all, I am up with a quick share. I will start my Chinese lessons today onward, we are living for 8 years here in Macao, next to China, and I had finally made up my mind that I should give it a try. I love learning new languages, I try to learn the language of every country I move to, and so far, I speak- English, Hindi, Telugu, Sanskrit, Urdu, Indonesian, Malaysian, Korean, and I read Arabic. The first 4 languages, I can read and write as well.

Anyways, lets go back to the card I am sharing, a simple Christmas card in red and gold.
I started off with a red textured base, and I got the happy mail from Beverly of Uniko Studios yesterday, and wanted to try the new vines, winter background stamps.
I used a tiny pine leaves stamp, and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and stamped a poinsettia, and few more red dots. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft, mini stamps. Oops forgot to mention that, I also added a gold paper strip on the top and bottom of the front panel. Finished off with matching sequins.

A closer look at the embossed pine leaves.

I was inspired by the CAS look of the card, and the pine leaves, plus a simple sentiment.

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