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'.
