World Cardmaking Day: Gold

The fourth challenge from Winnie & Walter is "gold".  (I missed the third challenge - but I'll go back and pick it up later!) I generally struggle with gold, but there's one time that I think gold is absolutely perfect - Christmas, particularly nativity scenes.

The other thing that I struggle with is photographing gold.  This photo looks so dull when, in real life, that embossing powder is full of iridescent flecks and looks gorgeous!  You can see it a little better in the close-up.

The set that I used by Winnie & Walter is Happy Christmas. It's full of sweet sentiments and a great variety of Christmas images.
