Golden Girl

I wasn't sure if this image would work for a Christmas card, but I think I may just have got away with it!  I've used my new Japanese Tilda image and glittered her up to the max, with lots of gold and glitz.  I've used a 'peace on earth' text backing paper which isn't showing too clearly in the photo as it is white writing on a pale gold paper. I've glittered up some buttons and added some gold ribbon. I've also found some textured corrugated gold card which I've used for a strip on the left. Would you believe that this was the first paper I ever bought as I used it on my wedding invitations which were the first cards I ever made in 2005. The gold buttons on the right are also glittered up to try to make it feel more Christmassy.

I've used inspiration from the following:
Happy crafting
