Sunday Crafting

I love looking through my stash and scraps to see what I can use up - this sentiment was already stamped and the self-adhesive ribbon is a DCWV one I have had for years!

In particular today I was looking for 'metal'.
 I came across a metallic embossing kit which was a magazine freebie from a year or so ago and also lots of pink and purple metallic cardstock.

So - I embossed a Christmas tree on silver foil and punched it into a scallopped circle.
I matted this onto pink metallic card. I used the same behind the ribbon and the sentiment.
I used an embossing folder on the mauve textured paper and punched another scalloped circle.
I then just assembled the elements, using foam pads to give some dimension.

My starting point was this sketch

 I am hoping Sketch and Stash can recognise the elements!

I am going to link this to

Happy Crafting!
