3M: Wishing you a METAL Christmas!

Hi friends!

I'm still here!  Oh my goodness, life has been non-stop!  
I haven't had any free time to make cards :(
Between Christmas prep, 3 December birthdays, my daughter's college graduation, school, church and Boy Scouts events, we're hopping! :)
Our daughter is back home from college and all moved back in - she's starting her wonderful new job next week, so we've been enjoying so many outings and girl time ♥

Yesterday, I finally got to sit down for a few minutes and work on
my 3 Musketeers challenge card - YAY!
Barb gave us a wonderful challenge: Use Metal!

 Barb's challenge:  Since December is busy for all of us, I wanted to send a simpler challenge
and hoped it does not cause too much stress or planning for a card. 
 The challenge is to make a Christmas Card or a New Year’s card  and make it metallic! 
 You can use metallic paper or use metallic embellishments or emboss with metallic colors. 
 Use your creativity to make a shiny card!
  Ready?  Set.  Go!

My card is very simple ~ letting the gold foil paper shine through as an accent
color and highlighting the Happy Christmas!
I added extra metal but putting the silver metal snowflakes
 and added the metal gems to the center.
Simple but I do like this card - it's bright and shiny, just like holiday ornaments! 

 I do love how this came out :)
It's shiny and classic and simple!

What I learned about metallic foils and papers - 
they are hard to photograph! :)
You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here.
Can you believe it's almost 2019!
I have a few more cards to post before the end of the year ...
stay tuned! ♥

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
