Dove of Peace Christmas card

The other day I found time to make a couple of cards, both the same, to add to the box for Christmas 2016. The card wasn't easy to photograph - mirri card never wants to play nicely for the camera does it :(
I used:

- 5" x 5" white card blank

- square of silver mirri card, slightly smaller than the card front, glued in place

- square of white card, slightly smaller than the silver layer, glued in place

- more of the silver mirri card, backed with Stick It adhesive sheet then the dove and sentiment were die cut using Sue Wilson's Creative Expressions 'Dove of Peace' set

- adhered the dove and sentiment in place on the card front - clean, crisp and simple

I'd like to enter this into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 285 where this week's theme is 'Silver' - as well as Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for June where it's always 'Anything goes'.

Hello Di!
Your Christmas care is beautiful! I'd say it definitely came through looking smashing in the photo. Tee hee - I'm trying to talk a bit British.

I hope you and yours (uh hum) are doing well.

Hugs,
