  1. This card looks so rich - the kind of card one of the three kings might give with their gold or frankincense. I'm impressed by how you've made the monochrome a feature rather than a limitation.

  2. Stunning piece I must say, your faux metallic work is very classey indeed. Colours are amazing and love the vintage look it gives your Christmas themed card.

  3. WOW! What a beautiful card !! BeautifuAl gilding, it looks as if the card came from bygone eras. Very beautiful effect of aging. I love this card. A very well deserved win!
