A Very Trendy Holiday Inspiration & A WINNER!!!!

Hi friends!
I am back with another card that was inspired by A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0!
  My card was inspired by a card Catherine made on StampNation, she was inspired by a card Sue made and shared on StampNation.  Sue's card was inspired by a card Allison made for the class.  
Whew!  How is that for inspiration?!!!

Catherine embossed images in gold on kraft cardstock.  It looked amazing and I knew I had to try it.  Instead of embossing in gold, I used my Golden Glitz, Delicata ink pad and sponged through my Poinsettia stencil.  I am absolutely in LOVE with this gold ink pad.  If you don't have it, I highly recommend it for your holiday cards or any cards.  It is amazing!  This photo doesn't capture the shimmer but in person it really sparkles and shines.  I apologize for the photo too, the weather has been very gray here so my picture quality is not the greatest.

AND now for the winner of a FREE spot in A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0....

Drum roll....
