Green and Gold Christmas

I'm feeling rather pleased with myself today because I've managed to make a card for this weeks Less is More Challenge.  It's a colour theme this week - Green and Gold.

I used a Woodware Snowflake stamp, a Clearly Besotted Sentiment stamp and Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words die.


I stamped the snowflakes in both green and gold and stamped the Christmas with green ink.  I die cut the Merry word in both gold and green card stock and layered them slightly offset so that the gold just shows behind the green.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland Challenge - Add a Sentiment
Less is More Week 240 - Green and Gold
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge 55 - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog, your company is much appreciated.
