joyeux noel

I got this beautiful SSS die in a sale after Christmas.  Isn't the font beautiful?  I inlaid the words cut from gold metallic cardstock into a dry embossed green rectangle for a classic holiday look.  The gold trim has been in my stash forever & gave just a bit of interest, but still keeps it CAS. The card is ivory which I love with green & gold.  Kept this one pretty flat, so I can even mail it without extra postage--yah!  I'm entering SSS Flickr, Share Joy, & HLS CAS.  

I knew the rain was coming, so cut pretty much all the roses that weren't tight buds.  This is one of 2 very full vases. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  8. Elegant card, Greta, gold and green is a perfect combination! I need you to plant a rose garden for me...and trim them, and feed them, nourish them, talk to them (oh, I could do that!!) can you just move in with me?? *wink*
