It's that time of the week again folks! Boy oh boy, the weeks are flying by now!
Well, here it is.... my penultimate card as Guest Muse for Mercy's awesome challenges!
Only one more left to do before I hand over to the December Guest Muse.

This is your sketch ...... They are almost a card in themselves!! Amazing!

Here is what I came up with......


I really wanted to do white and gold and the sketch was just the job for it!

The tree is a Hero Arts stamp that I embossed with detail gold. The panel behind it was embossed with a Sizzix embossing plate. The flourishes are Spellbinders and the gold sprigs are from my EK Success punch.
I layered the white card with gold mirri board.
The little greetings tag is from Craftwork Cards.

I hope you like it and will play along with Mercy's sketch challenge again this week.
Please link your project on Mercy's blog using the Mr. Linky facility. This makes it easy for us to visit you and see what you've created.
If you upload to a gallery, e.g. SCS or Papercraft Planet to name but two, please use the keyword MTSC48.
Please stop by the DT blogs and give them some love. You will LOVE what they have come up with!
AWESOME girls, every one of 'em!
