Christmas 2015 #21

I thought I had nearly enough cards completed (I only send hand made cards to a few family members) - but we had a bazaar at church on Saturday, and several of the Christmas cards sold!  So I am back at it!  I had been using shimmery cream and green, but there is not much green cs left.  Also, I wanted to use this shimmery silver, and I was not happy with the green and silver - decided I like the dark grey instead - especially with the silhouette.  The red ribbon adds a bit of holiday color.  The sentiment is computer generated, and the image Stampendous.  I added silver half pearls in addition to the ribbon - and some clear glitter to the snowflakes.
 Note:  The CRAFT challenge is for a Christmas present  - these are the gifts of the Magi to the best Christmas present of all, the Christ child.
