A New Year and a New Team!

Hello!

Happy New Year!!  I am currently on holidays at the Gold Coast, Australia. Hopefully we have blue skies and hot days to fully enjoy the week at the beach!  While I am holidaying, I have some exciting news to share (well, it's exciting to me!). I have been invited to join the amazing team at Fusion Card Challenge, yay! We will be starting the first challenge of the year this coming Thursday, and I hope you will join us. :-)

While you wait impatiently for Thursday to arrive with the new challenge inspiration, here is a card to keep you happy. ;-)
Yes, it's PTI Mighty Oak, with some Teach & Inspire apples added. To make this card I made a mask with the Mighty Oak die and sprayed with gold Smooch Spritz. Then I stamped over the top of the sparkly tree with Ranger Archival Black and Mama Elephant Mojito pigment ink. I can't remember the colour I used for the apples. The card mat is made using Mama Elephant Femme Frames.

Here is a different angle to show you the golden shine.
I'll be back on Thursday with my first submission as Design Team member with Fusion.
The team I am working (playing) with is this wonderful group of ladies:

Thanks for visiting!
