Christmas Card a Week #5

Hi All, I found another fun Christmas Card challenge called Merry Monday Christmas challenge  through my friend Leanne, so I made this card to fit the theme of  Chocolate Brown, Green, Gold and White or Cream!   It took me a bit to find the right image but I finally found this one from  Magic Moonlight, it was a free image I saved a long time ago.  I tried gold flock on the little birdies, but I like the Stickles Gold Glitter better.  I used Stampin Up Chocolate Brown for the 1/8th and 1/16th frames I cut with my Perfect Layers Rulers.  The green envelope and background paper are from Gecko Galz Grandmothers House papers.  This is my 5th card for my Christmas card stash, I am really happy I am accomplishing 2 of my goals for this year, to enter more challenges and to get my Christmas cards done before November.  Well, that's it for today, thanks for stopping by.   ~Diane

  4. This is one of those Wordless Wed type pictures that make you day dream and think about the story the characters are telling. I'd say this is a great chocolate picture and the gold really set it off. enJOYed this one.
