House Mouse & Friends #160 -Gold or Silver

Happy Monday Morning to all of you - Today I am here with my card for our Challenge over at House Mouse & Friends found here.  This week we'd like to see silver or gold on your House Mouse creations.   I do know how busy it is this time of year, but we would love to have you join in on the fun.  
Here is my card for this week.
I colored up this precious image titled Kitty Snuggle with Copic Markers.  As you can see I went with green and purples along with my gold to finish up this card.  The background paper is by SU! (retired).  The poinsettia is make up with SB dies and some fronds made with a MS punch.    I used a Word Window Punch (cut off one end) from SU! in the upper right hand corner.  The  sentiment was made with a retired SU! punch and a circle punch.  The sentiment itself is by CC Rubber Stamp Company.  Ribbon is from a roll I picked up at Michaels.  All the gems are from Pizzazz Aplenty. That's it about my card, can't wait to see what you come up with.      We have some great gifts from our two very generous sponsors listed below.  Thanks for taking a peek at my card.  See you soon.
