Guest design slot for Merry Monday

What a surprise it was when my card was chosen as the top pick for Always playing with paper Merry Monday 62 - you can read about it here - and I was invited to join them as a guest designer for today's challenge 64

This is the sketch to follow:

I used an A5 card blank on to which I stuck a piece of sentiment card by Kanban. The central panel is from a Hunkydory kit, with a piece of Paper Cellar glitter strip across the bottom and a sentiment from stash. I stamped the Rubber Stampede Santa collage with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail. All of this was then mounted on to gold mirror card before mounting on to the Kanban sentiment card.

I enjoyed making this card. I like the way that card from two different companies matched so well together.
