I love the combo of dark green with gold, especially for Christmas cards, and I think it looks particularly classy used in a CAS way.
The die was a magazine freebie several years ago, and oh boy does it need Stick-it adhesive! Those swirls are so very dainty nothing else will do. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed and I've added tiny flat back gold beads.
