Festiv Friday Element challenge: Tree

  Back again with another Christmas card for Festive Friday's element challenge.


  Here's my take:

The images and sentiments are from PTI's  Peaceful Poinsettia. I heat embossed the sentiment with gold and tied a gold cord under the panel.


 As I was embossing, I realized I could submit this card for Pti's June Blog Hop since the challenge this month is to add a touch of gold.  I am not too happy with the way the cord is sticking up.  Any suggestions besides snipping the tails a tad shorter??

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
