Merry Monday # 75

I am so glad that I have been playing all year with two Christmas Challenges...I have a good stash of cards...so no last minutes frantic late nights for me!!

A new color challenge over at  Merry Monday ...I had to think on this one!

 You can see the colors below: red, dark brown, vanilla and champagne/gold with some shimmer...I used a piece of dark chocolate for the actual card and stamped an image from an old Stampin' Up set called Peaceful Wishes...it was stamped with Encore! ultimate metallic gold...so pretty!  I placed a piece of gold shimmer paper behind it and place it all on a vintage cream card base.  The sentiment is stamped with Colorbox red hot along with the berries which I added a bit of glossy accents to the berries for a little more shine!  That's it folks, thanks for taking a look!
