Just Us Girls #268 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  My friend Cheryl is hostess at Just Us Girls and she chose a fabulous picture for our photo week challenge!  I just love this photo.
 
Here's a close up so you can see more details.
Christmas entryway with copper boiler tree stand, vintage sled, and framed vintage Christmas sheet music.
 
I of course had to pull out my sled stamp and die from PTI for this card!  Then I went looking for a tree (I found out there are many in my stash) and came across this tree that I just adore from PTI as well.  When I looked closely at the photo, I saw that the tree was planted in a copper container.  So I embossed the container with copper embossing powder.  I had space for a sentiment, so I pulled out a word die, cut it out of red cardstock, and added glossy accents on it.  I debated on which way to adhere the word and settled on this way.  The tree and the bough on the sled were covered in star dust stickles.  This card really sparkles...something I love!
 
I used the Freshly Made Sketches for my layout, but it seems I forgot a layer.  I hope I am forgiven!
 
You can see more inspiration from the team and our guest on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
