Merry Monday #41 - Merry Christmas

Hi Stampers,
I made this card for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge, my first attempt, I wasn't really happy with it.  I didn't think there was enough definition between the designer papers, gold metallic card and the gold embossed image on the soft suede, especially front on in a photo.  At this angle you can see the different layers so I thought I would post it.
My card probably just needed a different designer paper to show the layers better, in person it looks fine.
Stamps: S/U's Holiday Blocks (R), Petite Pairs
Card and Papers: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Gold Metallic
Ink: Versamark, Champagne Shimmer Mist
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Provo Craft Winter Trees E/Folder, DSP Mocha Morning (R), Embossing Buddy, Gold E/Powder, Heat Tool, 1 1/4" Square Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch, Oval Punch,
Large Oval Punch, Sponge, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
