PlayDate #4 challenge

Here's another card for Winnie & Walter's PlayDate challenge.  I was inspired by the glittery gold and silver photo on the right.

PlayDate #4

I stamped a Hero Arts ornament on a small panel first, embossed it in gold, and added some glitter to the snowflakes.  Then I added some pine branches from Winnie & Walter's new Winter Wonderland set, stamped in VersaFine Olympia Green.  And to finish I sponged bundled sage distress ink in the background.  The sentiment from the same set was embossed in silver on vellum, and then the whole panel was framed in a silver glitter paper.  My card background uses more of the same pine sprig, and Winnie & Walter's snowflake from The Big, Bold Seasons set.  I embossed them in Ranger's Silver Embossing Pearl to give a nice tone-on-tone effect.  Then that panel was attached to a pearly gold frame.  

Here's a detail shot to show you the glitter on the snowflakes on the ornament
