Gold at Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
Finally it's Friday and the end of the working week for some.  I still have to work tomorrow but looking forward to a relaxing day on Sunday.  And I will get an extra hour in bed on Sunday when the clocks go back lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland challenge blog.  Our theme for this week is 
You can use gold embellishments, papers, ribbon, colouring - just as long as it is christmas related and we can see some gold.

Here is my inspiration project using a lovely image from Delicious Doodles.

I kept the card really simple just layering the image onto gold mirror card and using some red pearlescent card for contrast.  I did add lots of stickles to the image for added sparkle but this isn't showing up very well on the photo.  Embellishments in gold finished the card.

We have two great sponsors for this weeks challenge:

Delicious Doodles with a prize of 4 digi images to the winner

Marianne Design with a surprise for the winner
