Gold and pink for christmas

Hi there! I usually love red and green for christmas cards but today I decided to try something different......inspired by the theme at inkspirational this week of using gold and one colour. My card was very quick and easy to make - I gold embossed my tree from hero arts and then used copics to add a little colour - I hope I remember this design for next year:)

My second card is one that I made for hubby for christmas but it also fits this months challenge theme at Mama Elephant & me which is valentine's card so I will add it to the challenge over there. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today and I hope your having a lovely weekend xx
