Papercraft Star Challenge #123

Hola y'all!

I'm having a very difficult time trying to figure out how we've arrived at December already.  I honestly feel like I finally got over writing 2011 on everything last week, and now we're almost to 2013! lol  Goodness!  Anyway, I'll get onto why you're visiting.  :)

The theme this week at Papercraft Star is:

A Golden Christmas Card!
You can interpret this any way you like (i clarified with the higher ups).  As long as you've got gold on it, you're good to go.  Here is what I created for this weeks challenge.
Does it look familiar??  A year or two ago I created something similar to this, but they were red, and they were Christmas ornaments.  I figured I'd see how my idea would turn out as a card.  I have to admit, I LOVE this!  I dipped the tips of my roses into gold embossing powder and heat set them.  They are even more lovely in person.  The layers are separated by foam adhesive for more dimension, and I love how the dry embossing goes perfectly with the shape.  I know exactly who will be receiving this Christmas card.
I've included the following challenges on my card:
Dynamic Duos #31 - Light Green & Red
Corrosive Challenge #163 - Anything Goes
Made Especially For You - Christmas Card With a Die Cut (my whole card was made with dies)
My Craft Spot #78 - Merry Christmas
Paper Playtime Challenge #90 - Chistmas Colors
Tammy's Scrapin Corner #39 - Anything Christmas
Cupcake Craft Room December Challenge - Anything Goes for Christmas
The Stamp Spot December Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
As always, the projects posted over at the PCS blog are nothing short of gorgeous this week.  Hopefully, you'll get the chance to check them out, and maybe even play along.  You won't be disappointed!
Have a great day!
