Jill's First Annual Christmas in July Challenge

Found a great new challenge at Anjillic Creations, with a fabulous prize! Her challenge is simply to create a Christmas card -- the perfect excuse for me to use my new PTI Vintage Ornaments and Additions stamp sets. I chose to do a classy/elegant card on cream CS entirely in gold -- gold-embossed ornaments stamped on gold paper, accented with gold Stickles, gold leaf on the feather-edged opening, and my sentiment embossed in gold as well. Really love how this turned out and really LOVE the versatility these ornament sets provide! Jill's challenge ends on 7-31!!!
Paper: Avery CS; DeNami Design Gold CS
Stamps: PTI's Vintage Ornaments, Vintage Ornaments Additions
Ink: VersaMark
Embellishments: Golden Rod Stickles; DeNami Design Gold EP; Krylon 18 kt. Gold Leafing Pen; Stampendous Class A'Peel Stickers

Very Classy AND elegant! Love how you did the ornaments! and of course the cool "chains" you put them on. You could probably do several of these with no problem :)

Hi Marge! Nice to "meet" you! Thank you so much for entering my challenge! It's an honor to have you. I absolutely LOVE your card! (This is a stamp set I went back and forth on last year before deciding not to get it. Mistake. Now I want it--on the wishlist it goes!) I love the gold-on-gold look you created, and the gold leaf you did on the edge of your card. It's the first time I've seen that and it's such an elegant effect! Oh, don't worry about blogging--your mention here with a link is just what I was looking for, so you're good! And no, I don't have a blinkie, but I am hoping my SIL will teach me how to do one! :-D Thanks again for participating!
