Silver and Gold

WOW!!  Has it really been 2 weeks since I last blogged?
I've had so much going on lately that something had to give.
Unfortunately I just did not have the time to create as much
as I would have liked.  

But I am making up for that - In the last 2 days I've made about
20 new cards. Some of them are now in a store in the small 
town where I live.  I'll show you some of those later. First I
have a card for the Merry Monday Christmas challenge blog.
I have been playing along with this blog since January. Although
I've missed a few challenges, I'm always checking in and admiring
all the beautiful cards that are posted.

The challenge this week is to create a card using gold, silver and
white with the addition of one other color of your choice. I chose
to use mostly silver and gold and add a little of old olive.

I'm having problems with getting a good picture lately - 
something I am working on. The silver pieces on this card look
dark in the photo - in person they are silvery and shiny.

Hop on over to the Merry Monday blog and check out all
the beautiful cards.
