Cute Daisy May - Green and Gold Christmas

Happy Monday Everyone!
It's time for the final challenge of the year at Cute Daisy Mayand we are ending with a Green and Gold Christmas.
I've chosen a few challenges to help me with this one and I'd love to see what you create with the color combo too.

Pennys Challenge had the theme of "Christmas Stars", I used a star embossing folder
Little Red Wagon had a photo inspiration of some gorgeous Green and Gold ornaments (or baubles for my English friends back home!)
Creative Card Crew wanted Gold or Silver
Cute Card Thursday had the theme of "Sew Beady" and wanted beads on your project. I used metal beads that I colored with a Copic to turn them gold and the "Peace" is a poetry bead.
365 Cards Day 285 wanted you to use the word Peace on your card
Lord Have Mercy had a great sketch that I gave a quick turn to for it to work with my image
Our Creative Corner wanted a Holiday project
Craft Ann wanted Texture



I simply loved the innocence of this image of the little girl with her candle from Sheet 53.
I colored her with Copic's.
I matted her on American Crafts gold cardstock and the back panels are embossed with the Stars folder from Cuttlebug.
The dp is My Minds Eye.



The inside is more dp and a message mat.



I just wanted a close up of the image :)
I'm sure you've still time to make another Christmas card, chose Green and Gold, show us what you've made and you could be the winner!
