Crafty Ann's #49 make yourself uncomfortable

We have loved seeing your white creations but it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's and this time we want you to "make yourself uncomfortable". Now I really wanted to enter my "white" card again but Ann wouldn't let me lol so I made a gold and silver one instead.

Thank goodness for digital images is all I can say at least it doesn't cost anything to bin a digital creation when it doesn't look right lol. Starting from my white base card I've used gold textured mirri card. layered with silver backing paper #3 with the gold poinsettia with border and script layered digitally on top (both available from Crafty Ann's digi shop)  . The poinsettia has been layered up for dimension. I've layered up a silver bow and stars on the corners and added a gold flower to the bow (all available from Crafty Ann's). Card is finished with a gold peel off sentiment and silver card candy.
As a special introductory offer throughout September Ann is offering a BOGOF on her metallics range - so buy any one and get one free!
Do pop over to the blog and see what my uncomfortable team mates have created (they all make it look so easy too!).

Challenges entered:
Desert Island Crafters - itinery (text print, dimension and flowers)
Christmas Crafting - sparkle (lots of sparkly metal)
Fab's Big Christmas - poinsettia or Christmas bird
Fresh Brewed - something new (metallic digistamps)
