Golden Hello and Good News!



Hey everyone!  Thought I would just pop in quickly to share a card a made a while back for a call that didn't get picked up....can you guess the theme?

It was gold!

I started by embossing my cardstcok using that great Maggie Holmes Doily folder, and then I added gold accents with my Delicata ink pad.

The hello was cut with gold foil cardstock.

I wanted to use some gold ribbon, but couldn't find anything that matched, so I just cut a strip of cardstock and used my ink pad to color it.

Then I added some clear sequins layered with gold sequins.  I'm going to link this up over at Simon Says Stamp since it's Anything Goes week.



And I mentioned good news, right?  Well, I found out this morning that I made the Gallery Idol cut and am through to the next round.  Thanks so much to everyone who voted!  I've already started brainstorming for the next challenge - stencils!

Come back Monday to see what I created and have a wonderful weekend!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  Avery Elle - Whipped Cream; LCI - Bubinga Woodgrain Paper
Ink:  Tsukineko - Delicata Gold Ink
Other:  Mama Elephant - Hello Script Creative Cut; Crate Paper - Styleboard Doilies Embossing Folder; Large clear and gold sequins; Tombow - Mono and Multi Mono Adhesive
