First 2012 Christmas card!

Morning! As the title suggests, I'm back to Christmas cards again! With making so many until practically Christmas Day I find it hard to just stop! Haha! But this is a nice a simple one. Excuse the dark photos, I need to get brighter lights for my light box. Somebody recently asked where I got the silver thread from but I can't remember. It's on a big roll and is something I've always just had. If anyone knows of anything similar, I'd love to know as I'm running low on it, thanks!
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's the challenges;
Less is More - Predominantly Purple
CAS-ual Fridays - Chipboard
Paper Sundaes - Saturated Colours
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

Goodness you are organised getting ready for next Christmas already! Not a lot of white space here Beth but it's a great simple design.
I have some thread which looks similar to yours, I can't tell how thick it is with nothing to give it perspective, but mine was from Hobby Craft and says Metallic Madeira on the end of the spool.
Thanks so much
Chrissie

Hi Beth! Thanks for your lovely comment...it was good to hear from you :-)
I'm loving crocheting....I've still not made any cards...my craft room is gathering a lot of dust...I do get the urge to make a card when I visit lovely blogs like yours though! Who knows, maybe I'll post one soon :-D
Love your Christmas card - really can't believe you still feel in the festive card making mood! Still, it's better to be organised I guess!
Big Hugs
