Joan's Card for this week's challenge~~

Gold and White makes such an elegant card.  These kind of cards can be used for many occasions. 
I made this as a Christmas card.  I hope you like it.  As most of us seem to say, sure wish I could photograph it as pretty as it is in real life.
Everything is popped up which gives it great dimension and shows the real beauty of the card.

Products I used on this card are:
Holly Corner - B184 - Cheery Lynn
Holly Branch - LR0244 - Marianne
Candles - LR0243 - Marianne
Christmas Round 1 Embossing Folder - EFE003 - Nellie Snellen
Sprawling Ferns -M41745 - Magnolia
Lace Coaster - M43763 - Magnolia
Circle Die - S4116  - Spellbinders 
Gold Cardstock
