Christmas Card Challenge #52 - Photo Inspiration

We have a lovely photo inspiration challenge for you this week over at the Christmas Card Challenge blog.  It's a close-up of a decorated Christmas tree.

Here's a close up of the photo.  Lots of inspiration to take from it!

I chose to use a tree and add lots of gold and green.  I stayed away from the red this time.  I just loved the green and gold together.  I had this gold chevron washi tape on my table that I just picked up last week and decided to add that to the card.  I needed a sentiment that was vertical and found this one from a new Tim Holtz set. I embossed it in gold.  The flags were cut from paper I embossed with the same gold powder so it would match the sentiment.  I added some (well lots really!) of gold and green sequins.  I never know when to stop when using them!  I tried several green inks on this stamp before I settled on this one.  Some looked too dark, almost black.
I used the Sweet Sunday sketch from last Sunday as my starting point. 
You can see more from the Christmas Card Challenge DT on these blogs.
