As You Like It Challenge #94 Favourite Gold/Silver and WHY

Hi Crafters,

It's the first of December!
Not long to go now until the Big Day so I'm continuing to get my Christmas cards made and this one is for the new challenge at As You Like It.

We'd like to see your favourite choice of Gold or Silver in a project.

I love both but when creating frosty Christmas card scenes I like to use silver, it certainly adds to the Wintry feel of a project or card.
It is notoriously difficult to photograph though and always seems to turn out looking black...I can assure you though in real life it is both shiny and silvery :o)

I love this Lorraine. The scene is gorgeous, just how I would love Christmas to be. The red and silver looks beautiful together and I love the addition of the tree.
