SIlver Christmas

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?  This week's Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is very easy and perfect if you want to get started:  Anything Goes!  This month's release is full of beauties.  Here I used a couple of them to make a very sparkly, silvery Christmas card.  For my background, I embossed in silver the Noel Ornament.  LOVE the different fonts forming the round shape.  Then I played with my distress inks and Perfect Pearls to make a starry night look.  I knew I wanted to make a poinsettia with silver craft metal sheet (the aluminum side of any craft metal sheet) and I wanted a darker background so it would really pop.  I found in my tiny stash of washi tape some glittery ones and I used that to make my matted border.
