Sparkles #92 - Blue and gold

Hello! It is the first of the month and I am back with inspiration for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas challenges. This time the theme is a color scheme: blue and gold.

This is one of my favorite Christmas tree stamps :) I stamped it with four different blues for an ombre look. Then I heat embossed the greeting (an older wood mounted stamp) below in gold and used gold Nuvo drops in random spots throughout the tree. After trimming the panel slightly, I adhered it to the front of a deep blue A2 card.

Stamps: Penny Black - Swirling; 
Inks: Distress Oxide - Broken China, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch
Embellishments: Nuvo drops - Bright gold; EP - Recollections gold

Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? My oldest is just about to start school next week so I know that I really have not. Luckily these challenges mean that I have a head start on my Christmas cards :) I hope you get a chance to play along with us.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
