Christmas club card

This time at the Christmas Club the challenge was chosen by the lovely Claire. She wanted us to incorporate SILVER, BLUE and EMBOSSING on our cards. I love silver and blue together so this was a no brainer but I didn't go for an image. I have this lovely word stamp from Inkadinkadoo which I stamped in clear ink and embossed with silver powder. I added lots of gems, card candy, silver peel off borders and made a flower using a Marianne die with white and silver. The leaves are embossed but it hard to see in my photo. I finished with a bow or ribbon and silver mesh.
I would like to enter this into
