The Twisted Sister challenge for this week was issued by Lesley (Marleygo) to make an all white card, with hints of gold, and some lace. The theme is not Christmas, but this challenged screamed just that to me, and I was also influenced by the other Twisted Ones in my choices. (Enablers, all of you!) I am counting my lacy Spellbinder as the lace. I have hoarded these "clearance" crystal blooms for nearly a year, and tucked them inside some giant Spellbinder snowflakes. I had to fight adding the gold MS Branch punches, trying to keep this simple.
Thanks for looking!

Wow Blooms this is stunning! I so love that tree. I don't think I will ever tire of it. That die is just perfect to showcase it. I like how you have the wee bit of gold on the layering. Then those flowers are so pretty. I can see why you have been hoarding them. Another Smether's masterpiece! Keep um comin Sis.

Well now, you have given new meaning to the words, "fresh as the new fallen snow" here, Pat !!
Those sparkly snowflakes - with the crystal blooms - are extraordinary as an embellishment to use with the timeless Lovely as a Tree image. That EF on the glossy gold made your gold evergreen the center of attention.
This is exquisite, Ms Blooms!! (oh, and gaw-gus TOO!) LOL

Wow Pat! You should frame this beauty! Lovely as a tree was the very first stamp set I ever bought and is one of my favorites. You certainly did it proud here! Those crystals and snowflakes send this waaaay over the top!
