Metallic Christmas

For this card I've used some pieces from the Hunkydory Elegant Christmas adorable baubles, matting on to some snowflake card and embossing a strip of gold mirror card with a Creative Expressions crackle folder.

This is for the sketch for Always playing with paper Merry Monday 27:

Also based on this photo inspiration given for Winter wonderland this week:

Secret crafter Saturday 198 is asking for gold, silver or bronze - I hope it's OK that I've used all three of them!

This is also for:

Christmas card challenge week 37: texture
Bloggers challenge: add texture
Chocolate, coffee & cards 19: emboss
Tabitha's designs: Christmas in July
Creatalicious 36: Christmas in July
Just keep on creating: Christmas is just around the corner
One stitch at a time 126: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes
Challenge up your life 75: everything goes
