{Sharnee's} 12 Days of Christmas {day 6}

Last night whilst I was doing my usual blog reading I came across Makeesha's Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #15 and this is the picture...

How sparkly!! I do really like these cushions and it got me thinking..." Ummmm maybe I could make a Christmas card with this as my base for day 6?" So I did!!
It was certainly one from outside the box, as you can see there's no sign of red and green (just the berries in the background for my photo!) but I think it really works for something different! I also need to say that I've NEVER edged black on card stock before, nor have I done a lot of embossing with silver but I really REALLY like it!! What do you think?

I've used some of my favourite accessories here too, the Star (love star's), the cool shape, (of which I can't think of it's proper name...) , ribbon (naturally) & those super fab corduroy buttons!!
Well I best be off, shower, breakfast those sort of things... have a blessed and wonderful Sunday!

I love your button and ribbon detail! Gorgeous. Is the shape you're thinking of "top note"?
