The Glory of Christmas challenge 65: silver or gold

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 65: silver or gold. Please click on the link to join in the challenge and to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team.

I have used silver and gold on my card, using a black shaped card blank which some silver glittered snowflakes randomly around the edges, with three layers of decreasing sizes die cuts, the middle one being gold mirror card on to which I stuck the lovely Bethlehem scene that was rescued from a card received, cut down and corners rounded - there's quite a lot of gold foiling on the picture.

This is also for:
