CHNC challenge 272: colour: gold ... a little or a lot

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 272 - please click on the link and join in the festive fun - it's never too early to think about making one or two Christmas cards to save panic towards the end of the year.

The theme for this week's challenge, as it's the 2nd Saturday in the month, is a colour: gold .. a little or a lot.
This is my card, featuring the lovely Crafts 4 eternity image Christmas cupcakes - combining three together (kindly supplied by one of my sponsors) coloured with copics and spectrum noir pens. There is a fair amount of gold on this card, which makes it difficult to photograph, especially as some is embossed mirror card:

This is also for:
