Friends with Flair - Playing with Gold

     Happy almost the weekend!  This week I was trying to gather up what Holiday stamps I had in my Unity bins.  I found a really out Stampin Store Kit from October of 2009!  Although I think this set is no longer available, I hope you enjoy.  There were sure some pretty stamps in it.  Here is my offering for this Friday's Friends with Flair, over on the Unity Blog.

 
     I found a 1/2 sheet of pearlized cream card stock in my stash, to use as my base.  My next layer is BoBunny designer paper from their Woodland Winter Collection.  I distressed the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.  There is this great flourish and sweet sentiment included in the kit, and I decided to jump on the gold band wagon.  I pulled out my Ranger Gold embossing powder and got busy.  I found a scrap of soft sand PL card stock, and gold embossed this elegant tree from the set. After cutting it into a triangle,  I topped it off with a star embellishment from Sandy Lion.

     Hubby and I want to thank all of our friends for his birthday wishes.  If you did not see the post of my kitchen pictures, click here!  Have a great weekend, and thanks for the visit.
