PTI 8th Anniversary Day 7 - Heavy Metal Challenge

Hello friends.  The challenge for day 7 is to use just gold and/or silver and neutrals.  I had to think about this one for a bit as it's not my style, but I have to admit it ended up being fun and I really like the card I came up with!  Take a look:

I used a cream cs for my card base, and then stamped 3/4 of the card with a French script and Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  Then I embossed my sentiment (Life is Beautiful) with gold embossing powder.  Next I added a strip of glittery gold cs to separate the script background and the sentiment, and then added the wreath (Rustic Wreath) and butterfly (Life is Beautiful) from gold mirror cs and a foil embossed cs.  I had to laugh after I took my photos and realized that you can see bits of me taking the pictures in the gold mirror cs! :0)  I finished with a few gold sequins.  I have a friend who is turning 50 this summer, and I think I'll save this card for her "golden" birthday.

You can see all the other creative entries over on Nichole's blog right here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day! :0)
