Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Shiny New Year

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using something shiny. I had a piece of painted cardstock left from my Christmas cards, which made a perfect background for this tree die cut. This gold paint - I love the shine of it! This is the Lumiere Bright Gold.

This Square Window Tree die cuts a window opening, so I created a frame around it with a Spellbinder A2 die. That panel is popped up with foam tape to cast just a little shadow on the background. The sentiment is HERE.

Speaking of everyday miracles, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset last night - it really inspired my card today!

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -
