GDT at CYDA: Christmas Trees Card

Good morning!  I can't believe I was chosen to be a guest designer for this week at Craft Your Days Away!  Thank you girls so much!  Well, the theme this week is Christmas Trees, and since I'm working on my Christmas cards, I made two cards for this challenge.  

My first card features an image from The Hodge Podge Shop.  This one took me, literally, 2 minutes and only 4 Copics to color and I think he just looks so sweet!  I didn't have any actual gold paper or cardstock on hand, so I used a paint pen around the edges of some of my beloved Gina K. paper.  I also used Gina K. for my embossing layers, so needless to say, this little baby has a bit of weight to her.  LOL.

I used the gorgeous sketch over at Crafting Life's Pieces for this one.  I think that's a very elegant and simple layout.  Definitely one that's going in my sketchbook!
