Joy in Silver & Gold

 Hello, Friends!

I hope you are surviving any weather of late.  We've had more rain than usual this Fall but we are slated to maybe have more snow than usual, as well.  Thus far, the snow remains in the mountains, even though the elevation seems to be dropping more quickly of late.  We've even had our main mountain pass from east to west closed, in both directions already!  I don't remember that happening before.

Anyway, onto the card that you came here for, right?  This one came by inspiration from Color Hues #30 - Silver & Gold.  I also used a die set that has sat for far too long, so it'll also visit NBUS #32.  You'd think at this pace I'd get caught up and make Darnell proud, but nope -- just got some more delivered! 🤦🤦🤦

I used a cover plate for the pretty background, and die cut the mistletoe from gold, and the berries and bow from silver.  EZ PZ but I love the subtle elegance of this one!

For the sentiment, it's actually the Joy word, on a line that usually extends across the paper from side to side, forcing it to sit to the right.  I chose to do a little snipping, so I could have it centered under the mistletoe bunch.
