A Christmas challenge with a friend

Who knew I would be posting a card within a week of my last blog post? I was feeling down in the dumps and my girlfriend, MariLynn encouraged me to craft with her today!
Here requirements to craft today were as follows; a toilet paper roll, the Darice music embossing folder she sent me, gold or silver, glitter and make it a Christmas theme.
It was so incredibly wonderful to be able to have a goal and a friend to craft with. A big thank you with a hug goes out to MariLynn. I will be including a link to her post when it's live.
I used Winter Blessings from Unity Stamp CO. I started out by spritzing water on my flattened and cut toilet paper roll. Next, I embossed it with the music ef. I distressed the edges and set about applying Inka gold in gold with my finger. The pine bough was stamped with green envy and the pine cone in chocolate chip and then I used iridescent ice embossing powder (a blast from the past). I then added some burlap, stamped a tag which I used the inka gold on as well, some gold organza ribbon that I distressed by heating and some gold brads.
MariLynn, thank you for making my day brighter. She even sang a bit to me! Beautifully, I might add!

Have a lovely evening wherever you are!
