FTTC Silver and Gold

Hey there!  Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful with lots of good food and laughs.  Ours was very good. We had an early dinner at my MIL's with DH's side of the family and then that evening went to my brother's place where all of my family had gathered.

Then on Black Friday, we drove back down to pick up my SIL's old elliptical and got it set up in our rec room. Yep, it's high time I get back on the fitness wagon.  I even went as a guest to my friend's gym last night. I've been a slacker for months now....too long.  Anywhoooo....onto today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!....

Cindy is our hostess this week and she's challenging us to add silver and gold to our projects.  Here's my card:


I stamped the Christmas tree from Trimmed With Love in white craft ink onto vellum, then heat embossed it with Egyptian Gold embossing powder.  Next I cut a thin strip of kraft on an angle for the sentiment(s), added some silver adhesive pearls and silver and gold cord.  Really easy card.  The picture doesn't capture the sparkle, but it's reeeally sparkly with the embossing powder.   :)

Be sure to stop by the Timeless Tuesday blog for all the details of the challenge and, of course, you can find even more inspiration by hopping around to see what the rest of the FTTC girls have created for you....
