Silver or Gold for Winter Wonderland

Good morning to all my friends and fellow bloggers. Today the challenge at Winter Wonderland is to "use some silver or gold" on your card.  However, we now have two themes each week and the alternate theme is "use an embossed background"  so you can choose either theme, or maybe be adventurous and combine the two.  Since this is our last challenge before having a summer break both the Snowflakes and Icicles are taking  part so if you hop across to the blog you will find lots of inspiration.   We will back on August 26th with another challenge. Don't forget that we  accept only Christmas projects.

My Card

6" square base card
silver mirri - Docrafts
backing paper - "Snowboarder" from The Paper Shelter
Image  "Wintergreen Wishes" - Crafts and Me
icicle die - JoyCrafts!
Pierced Noble Rectangle dies - Creative Expressions
Sentiment die - Britannia Dies
Promarkers to colour

Mirri card is so difficult to photograph! The icicle die was diecut from silver glitter card and I added lots of glitter to the trees and the fur trim.  I'm sure I read somewhere that it is illegal to make Christmas cards without using glitter, and since I'm such a law abiding person I have definitely complied ... lol!

We are sponsored this week by A Day For Daisies who are offering a $12 gift card for use in their store.

Our second sponsor is Crafts And Me who are offering £8 to spend instore.

Well this weekend is almost upon us and I do hope you have a great one.  Take care.
