Non-traditional Christmas card

Here's my non-traditional Christmas card.  Can you guess why I love it?  First of all I love the colors; no surprise there!  Second, I LOVE the silver glimmer paper.  Can I use it on every card?  I hope so!  Third, I love that it's a simple card but has a few details that add a lot: ticket corner punch, scallop border, embossing on the card front, and Frost White shimmer paint.
The color combo is a dynamic duo: Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.  The card base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 5 1/2.  I ran the card front through the Snowburst embossing folder.  It shortened the front of the card, so I used the scallop border punch on that as well as the Elegant Eggplant layer behind the silver shimmer paper.
I stamped the pine tree in Elegant Eggplant ink onto Wisteria Wonder, then I stamped again with Frost White shimmer paint.
Happy stamping!

Jana, this is so elegant. I love the 3d look of the tree against the shimmer background.
