Paper Players 314

I loved the sketch at The Paper Players this morning and set to work on it straight away. Although the card looks good in real life, I've struggled to get a decent photograph of it.

Metallic embossing is notoriously difficult to capture, so I hope that viewers use a little imagination...

What I am particularly happy with is the Christmas tree. I stamped it first in Early Espresso, then added in the leaf block with Pear Pizzazz. Finally, I restamped the branch area only in Versamark and embossed it in copper and added a little embossed star to match. I like the contrast between the copper blinginess and the humble linen twine.
