Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and the theme this month is Gold or Silver and/or Glitter.

For my DT card I have used a Penny Black poinsettia which I heat embossed in gold and fussy cut.  The edge die is also from Penny Black and the sentiment, which is also embossed in gold, is from LOTV.   I have added a few sparklies too.

This isn't the original card I made for the challenge as when I saw the original on screen I wasn't happy and decided after much thought to make a fresh one.  It didn't take long as it is very similar to the first but with a slight alteration to the flower and sentiment placement.

Not long to go now to Christmas, but I think sadly  it will be a lot different this year for many of us.

I would like to enter:
