All that Glitters

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Home, cabin, cottage, vacation spot' - the choice is yours!

I'm entering Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Non-traditional colours', Cardz 4 Guys  'Favourite Colour Combo' (black and gold are a favourite of mine for men's cards), Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use some Gold' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image and paper: Making Cards magazine 'All that Glitters' (magazine freebie)
Card: Black matt:
Other: Card Candi 'Metallique - Bronze', Wink of Stella

I trimmed the gold floral paper, layered it onto black card and attached it to the card front.  The image was trimmed, layered onto black card and attached to the centre.  I added Card Candi to the top and bottom corners and highlighted the wording and the gold on the houses with a Wink of Stella.
