Golden Christmas

Welcome to my mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  We are a month long, anything Christmas related goes challenge.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my inspiration card for you:
 I am not usually a big fan of gold, but I have to say how much I love how this card turned out.  The sentiment is embossed in this gorgeous sparkly gold powder and the gold matting just really sets off the pink.  And I spritzed some gold mist on the poinsettia.  You can see that in the photo below.  I didn't have any gold pearls so I colored some white pearls with my gold paint pen.  Perfect match!
