More Christmas extravaganza

This is my second card for Christmas cards all year round August: Christmas extravanganza - make it fussy and fancy. Please come and join us if you can.

This is a large 8 x 8 card with a piece of Hunkydory foiled card in the background, topped with a piece of Kaisercraft turtle dove script paper. I overlaid this with a piece of snowy acetate. The embossed strip is an offcut from using an eBosser folder. The image is a glittered one that was part of a set that I bought long ago (have loads of them left). Flowers are prima and the strips of pearls from stash.
