Gray, purple and silver, oh my!

Sorry for the silly title, but I couldn't think of anything wittier...lol!  I would like to share with you my newest Christmas card for 2015:
 
 
I am quite happy with how this eventually turned out!  I've been creating the ornament for the last few days...it started life as a tissue box, then with the help of my Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2012 and  Blossom 5, 2 shades of gray cardstock, silver and purple shimmer paper, the MS fern punch, Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves, MS Punch Around the Page, Memento London Fog ink, some Stickles, Papertrey Ink Signature Christmas, vellum, string beads, bling, and various adhesives (whew!)...I ended up with this!
 
After taking this picture, I realize I probably should have grabbed a different bottle of Stickles for the flowers, as this one has too much gold in it, but, too late now!  It looks better IRL, trust me!
