gold xmas

hi all
as promised here is a the card i have made for my other sis,this time in gold ,using the same products[8x8 in square card] and method as yesterday except i used gold instead of silver ,the ribbon on these cards is exquisite and is from the .ribbonbox ,this gold one has poinsiettas on and yesterdays silver had holly on it ,the card looks a bit wonky but it was the only way i could take a pic without my reflection in the mirri !!!!!i prefer the silver version what do you think?
