O Come Metallic ODBDSLC257

Welcome to another Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  I have just returned from a cold,wet and rainy camping trip that has put me in the Christmas Spirit.  That sounds a bit odd but the cold weather was great for sitting around a campfire!  I could have taken less rain but we made the best of it and went out sight seeing. This is just the sort of weather that sends me running for my Christmas Tunes while I create Christmas cards. I guess the timing was perfect for this challenge!

 Today we are working with the colors white, black, silver and gold. I chose to use the white, silver and gold on my card. When I first saw the Adore Him Die, I knew I had to use some bright gold to create an elegant card. All I did was use a few layers, two die cuts and an embossing folder to make this simple card! I guess the most difficult part of this was to fussy cut the embossed white layer. The perfect accompaniment to this die cut was the use of a small star die cut from the Splendorous  Stars Dies. It's simple, easy and elegant!
