Christmas Card with Sparkle and Glitter

I've made the panels with
silver mirror carton, covered in a kind of fabric with black and silver glitter threads. The trees are cut out of transparent paper with music notes, using a Marianne CreaTables die. I attached them to black paper, so that the pattern would be more visible. I added red pearls and rhinestones to the trees. For the label I used red paper, A Christmas sentiment rub-on and two star brads.
I'm quite pleased with the result, but not so much with the pictures, as I struggled to avoid having my reflection in the mirror cards:)

Wow!! This is so unique. I have never seen anything quite like it before, but the result is stunning. I'm sure it is even better in real life since photos of shiny things are so hard to take. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
