Two by Two at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon.
Thanks for all the best wishes yesterday for my Dr's and dentist appointments.
The cost at the dentist was more painful than the treatment - ouch!!!
Wasn't great news at the Dr's either as I have damaged some tendons/ligaments in my right shoulder - think I did it at the Gym a couple of weeks ago and I had hoped it would just 'heal' itself!!! So I am now on a course of anti-inflammatory tablets - that I need to take for SIX WEEKS!!! and I also need to have physio - so waiting for them to get in touch to organise my first appointment :o(

Anyway enough of my woes - the real reason I'm here is to share my DT project for 

and this week the theme is 

so you decide how to interpret that - it could be two colours, two images, two design papers, two embellies - so many options :o)

Here's what I did:

So you can see I have used two die cuts, two colours and two types of embellies (ribbon and pearls), sentiment - two words

Card Ingredients:
Spellbinders: Heirloom Ornaments 2011
Justrite Stamps: Vintage Christmas Ornaments CL-04660
Stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold EP
