VLV - Week 3

I needed a birthday card for my brother this month, so wanted to combine the birthday theme on SCS in the Free 4 All 'Christmas Break' challenge with Amy's Viva la Verve sketch challenge on the Verve forum. This month we were to draw inspiration from ornaments and winter decor, so I used a little brown Christmas tree with gold and coppery-sparkled highlights as my inspiration. I was disappointed in the results (the copper embossed sentiment got lost in the DP) but I don't have time to redo it...too many things to clean! :-(
STAMPS: Big Wish (Verve), Antique BG (SU) - embossed in copper on the Nestie
PAPER: Tim Coffey Designer Mat Pad (K&Co), Neenah Solar White
INK: Versamark, Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: Copper brads, Copper EP, Copper Stickles, Clear Star Sakura pen (to highlight candles and flower), Labels Fourteen Nestabilities, Oval Nesties, Enchanted Evening satin ribbon (PTI), Slot punch

Exellent idea for the copper embossing of the sentiment-love the tree you used for inspiration. Also, loved the "ships" card below {I spyed on SCS}- it's wonderful!!
