Merry Christmas

A Christmas card to add to my stash today, I used the theme Add a Christmas Tree at Merry Monday challenge #259 and with my gold embossed tree and silver embossed text background I am also playing along at Jingles Belles - include embossing on your card.  This has to be the busiest card I've made in ages... just kept adding and I now agree - less is more sometimes.  I am also posting to Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Christmas theme.
Anyway I stamped my tree twice in Distress Ink and then once with Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Then I masked the trees and silver embossed the background and edges.  To finish I used an orangey brown layer on a green card, added some gems and silver threads.  Thanks for taking a peek
