Silver Santa

Whoops, I should have posted this yesterday, but better late than never!  We're talking gold or silver over at As You Like It Challenge this fortnight and for me it's definitely silver.  I feel that silver is a bit more modern than gold when it comes to jewellery and that preference also translates into my cards too.

I've used a silver mirri card as the backdrop for my Santa image, embossed and embellished with a frosty border die.  The only trouble with mirri card is that it's so hard to photograph!  I've also used silver on the image itself, where I've used a silver gel pen to colour the ribbon on the present that Santa's hiding behind his back!

This is my usual picture of the card, standing up, but the silver looks black .....

... so I've taken another picture which shows that it's definitely silver, but you need sunglasses to avoid the reflection of my lamp now ....

... and finally a close up to show the silver on the image.

Santa is rather cute!! Silver is very difficult to photo especially with the cloudy weather we have had. Great card of course. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Pure gorgeousness!! Loving this little Santa and your fab colouring - but isn't it a nuisance that we can never photograph silver well - it always looks black or grey on my pics!
