Challenge me a Christmas card 24 take 2!

My friend Janet quite liked my last card for Challenge me a Christmas Card - just to jog your memory, here it is:
Janet challenged me to remake this card, but using gold and/or silver.  I pulled out my Zing! gold glitter embossing powder and got embossing!
I modified it a bit to add a panel of vellum in the middle to put the sentiment on. Adding Stickles to vellum makes it warp a bit, so I stuck the panel to the card first, then added the Star Dust Stickles to mimic the pattern of the stencil from The Crafters Workshop underneath, and the Stickles made the vellum curl at the edges, which adds some more dimension to the design.  I also added some Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to the corners to add some depth to the gold.

These photos just don't do this card justice, so I took a short video:

I will be sharing this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is "make it sparkle".
Thanks for visiting :)
