Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 5 - Silver and Gold

I made this card on Sunday for this weeks Silver and Gold challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs blog and then forgot to post it.  So better late than never..............

I began by creating a window frame using my  XL square stackers.  I added some window panes by adding a piece of Lattice 2 behind the frame.  For the siding look on my card, I used Coredinations paper and added texture with my Big Weaver Plate, sanding the raised areas.  I used gold mirror card and red card stock for the Ornamental Wreath and Bow.  Using my Oval Little Stackers I created the panel for my sentiment.

For the inside of the card, I die cut Elegant Evergreen out of silver mirror card, backing it with some red card stock.  I added Border Carnivale below the tree and  Anastasia Border along the top of the card.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I wish mirror card would photograph better as this is really quite spectacular in real life. Here is a tip, if you click on the image for a larger size and it comes up with the new Blogger slideshow window; you can right click on the image and choose View Image.  This will take you to a new browser window where you can click on the image for an even larger view.  The details from the dies on the mirror card are beautiful.

Won't you join our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week for our Silver and Gold challenge. The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs.  They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn Designs website.
