Merry Christmas

       The Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to use metallic papers


This card is a bit different from those I usually make it is C&S which I like but in a different way. The first thing I did was to use a Die-namics die to cut the metallic paper background,then the rest fell into place.
