Oh Holy Night

 Yes, I have to get going on my Christmas cards!  I created this one card for five different challenges.

A very simple design using designer paper for the background, a die frame and sentiment cut from gold metallic paper.
I layered both the frame and sentiment over a sturdier white card die cut and they are both up on foam.

I say a simple design but it took me about 2 hours to find a piece of DP with the Kick Start Challenge colors in it!!  And I die cut the frame and sentiment out of 4 different colors before settling on gold!

Here are the challenges I'm linking to:

Music (Oh Holy Night is a Christmas Carol)

Anything Goes Christmas

No Stamping

Color Palette

first time using this Oh Holy Night die even though I bought it 4 or so years ago??!!

Paper: Kraft Stock Metallic Gold - Tim Holtz/Idea-ology, DP Alluring Blooms Paper Pad - Altenew, white card  - PTI
Accessories: Oh Holy Night die - Cut-plorations, Nested Rectangle with Square Holes die - Rubbernecker, foam strips and dots.

Isn't it funny how sometimes the simplest ideas can take the longest to execute ... your gorgeous paper certainly fits the bill ... so very glad you joined our NO Stamping Christmas at Jingle Belles.
