Golden Christmas

Good Thursday evening everyone!  I'm here tonight to share a card I *was* making for the Winter Wonderland challenge, but didn't get to link it up in time.  But I'll share it anyway:
I've always admired gold and white cards made by others, but this is the first one I've made.  I rather like it!  The image and sentiment both come from the Nativity Christmas set from Stampendous. It's a great set I bought at Michael's a few weeks ago.  I started with a 5.5 inch square card base, then layered gold shimmer paper, a corner punched white layer, a piece of sparkly and sheer wired ribbon, , then my image panel, mounted on a scrap of white that I embossed the edges of with the same powder as the image and sentiment.  I learned that from Jennifer McGuire!  Lemme show you a close up of the sparkle in the embossing powder:
Pretty, isn't it?  The photo still doesn't really do it justice.

Challenges I'm adding this to:
Holly Jolly:  BINGO/Tic Tac Toe  (I used the top row, ribbon, texture, glitter)
Completely Christmas:  Anything goes w/a twist; add a sentiment
That's all!  Thanks for stopping by...take care and hug your loved ones!  :)
