Merry Christmas and a Card Challenge

I hope that you are enjoying time with family and friends and celebrating all the blessings of Christmas.

Today also starts the next 2 week Card Caravan Challenge at The Hybrid Chick. The final one of this year!!!

The theme this time around is "metal".  Open to your interpretation.  You can use some type of metal on your card, a brad, a staple, sheet metal, aluminum foil, tinsel!!!  I used a sheet of plum colored metal and embossed a poem on my card.  I thought the wording was perfect for a "New Year's" card.  The poem reads:
The blink of an eye, The time it takes to have a deep thought, The time it takes to decide if you should or should not, The time it takes to love and the time it takes to hate, The time it takes to smell something you like but never ate, A bright idea can come and a bright idea can go, Life can become high and life can become low, A bird's little chirp can turn into a beautiful song as life comes and goes Ten Seconds Long. by Geoff Darrow

My card is a type of gate fold card.

Merry Christmas to you all!
