For Kimberly & Muse: ChristmasVisions 18

This is for my sweet, darling, kind, generous friend in Seattle... who I miss very much!  Look at this beauty Kimberly's made to inspire and delight us:

Wish I had this cinnamon-y kraft paper - maybe Kimberly
will tell me where she got it?
 
Yesterday I spent a bit of time reorganizing ... you all know well and good what this means, right?  In my defense, and in the spirit of re-purposing, I just can't seem to throw away a Christmas card!!!  Man, am I glad I don't.  Look what I've managed with one of them for ChristmasVisions 18:
 
SSS tree die, cut twice: once in gold, once from the front of a foiled Christmas card.
Sweet little sentiment from Paper Smooches, gold embossed.
 

I was inspired by: embossed metallic, multiple trees, and the gold bird - though I replaced him with a little sequin star.  One of you will undoubtedly find this little one in your Christmas mail this year!  One more down... yay!
 
 
Nearly looks like stained-glass... hope Kimberly likes it =]
