A Bit of Gold…




Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 4.13.03 PMHello Friends,  It’s time again for our weekly challenge over at Just Us Girls.  I sure hope you had a chance to play along last week as we had some wonderful prizes up for grabs. Congrats to all 4 of our winners!  This week is our Trend Week and Lisa has asked us so incorporate gold onto are cards and or projects.  At first glance you may not see any gold on my card, however I have used gold stickles on both centers of my flowers in and outside the card and on the flower petals on the front.  I can’t take credit for this entire card, my fabulous SU consultant got me started and I changed it up quite a bit and added to the layout when I got home form her house. I would link up her personal blog for you, but sadly enough she doesn’t have one.  I do love this type of tri-fold card…so fun!  I wanted to show you what the card looked like when it’s closed, that is why you see my giant clothespin. All supplies are form Stampin UP except for the sunflower die (Sizzix), and the petals (MS punch).  I colored the Koala with my spectrum Noir pens and a little colored pencil to give him some fluff!  Here is a better view of the inside!

Hope to see you at JUGS!  If you when our Chic of the Week this week, you just might be our next Guest Designer for the month of September….good luck!  Nanc’
