Golden Christmas Card

I created another Christmas card to play along with week 3 (3rd of 4 challenges for November) of Verve's Viva La Verve challenge, which includes a sketch and inspiration:

I used the cream, gold, books (script), and flourishes as inspirations for my card:

Verve's Diva Dare for November challenges you to use vellum.  I've used 3 types of vellum in my card:  The large doily was embossed on gold vellum, the smaller doily on white vellum, and the vertical strip on the left side of the card is a script-patterned piece of vellum.  I also ended up punching out snowflakes from vellum for the centre of the doilies as a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Paper: CTMH Colonial White; Recollections vellum, gold
Stamps: Verve 'Ornamental Christmas'; CTMH 'Simple Memories'             
Ink: CTMH Cocoa
Other:  Cuttlebug; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Versamark; CTMH gold embossing powder, Rosewood embellishment; Recollections gold embellishment, 'Glitter on a Roll'; Martha Stewart snowflake punch; Liquid Pearls
