Christmas silver extravaganza

This is my third card as one of the design team for Christmas cards all year round August: Christmas extravaganza - make it fussy and fancy.

This is another 8 x 8 card. The silver mirror card punched circle was cut with my mini 8 snowflakes punch and the smaller one was also cut with that using a piece of Hunkydory foiled card.

The image is Kanban spring silhouettes (but I think it can double up as snowflakes with a bit of imagination - lol!) inked with versamark and heat emhossed with detail silver powder, with the addition of some sparkly flower gems from Hobbycraft., cut out with a nestie die. Punched snowflakes were added at the corners with little pearls.
