Silver Soldier

Hello.  Welcome.  Why isn't it soljier??  Isn't English a funny language.  Anyway, moving on......

Over at MFP they want silver and gold together so I grabbed my little nutcraker and this happened

I stamped Marks Finest Paper Nutcracker and the vertical Merry Christmas from the Dear Santa set on gold card and embossed with silver powder.  I fussy cut the nutcracker and mounted him and the sentiment on a piece of silver paper on a gold card base.
