Another quick Christmas card

I'm almost through showing you my 2012 Christmas cards.

It features another of Paulette's digital images. It would have been such a waste not to use it for 2012, since I will be unable to use it for this year, unless Paulette decides to do a 2013 version of course LOL.

The png image came in black and white, but since I intended to use it to make at least 10 cards, I decided to colour the ornaments on the computer (using Paint, which happens to be able to handle png files these days) in red and golden yellow before printing onto Neenah solar white cardstock. After printing, it was merely a matter of cutting my A4 sheets, adding some gold paper strips, adhering everything to my cut and folded cards (also Neenah) and trimming off the excess gold paper strips.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays - #83 Make a CAS holiday card in less than 10 minutes
Catch the Bug - Holiday/seasonal
CHNC - #105 Anything Christmas goes
CHNC Extra - Always Anything Christmas goes
