Silver, White and Brown for Christmas

I believe this is the first time I use the color combination of silver and brown, it's one I'm going to use again, I think it turned out really well with my vintage image.

The background paper is kraft covered with white gesso. I used my paper crimper to get the textured look. For the second layer I used glitter vellum paper.

The poinsettias are made with a MB die and a pearl brad from my stash. I cut two pieces of a paper straw, tied them together with brown string and added a silver snowflake charm. I stitched with white thread around the edges and I distressed the edges of the image.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Christmas Optional Twist no Red or Green
2) Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Christmas with twist non traditional colors
3) Moving along with the Times - Inspired by a Song (Hark the herald angels sing)
