I just LOVE using the beautiful gold foil paper I found at Michaels some time back. The difficult part, however, is photographing it. Either you see your own reflection in the card, or you have to shoot your photos at an angle. Either way, it's not ideal. I did the best I could to photograph this one, but I couldn't take the traditional photos I would have like to take. I don't feel like the photos ever do these cards justice. If I had more time on my hands, I'd do a search on how to photograph these cards (because I'm certain there are tutorials out there), but for now......wonky photos! LOL
I used some Simple Stories patterned papers and stickers, a Crate Paper Market Place gold foil frame, machine stitching, Tim Holtz Black Soot Ink, vintage sheet music, an old Christmas stamp set (from My Craft Spot), mini pearl stickers, Christmas Baker's Twine and Gold Metallic String.
I haven't been linking to many challenges lately, but I really want to get back into it more. I've recently found a couple of challenges where my cards fit the theme, and I do enjoy playing along. So.....I am linking to the challenges I am aware of, and that my card qualifies to enter.

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by today. I'm always very grateful to have other artists stop by and leave their comments and thoughts about my cards. That's one of the best things about card-making.....we all have our own style, but it's all beautiful. We take pride in what we make, and it makes us happy. That's what it's all about. I look forward to seeing what YOU have been creating this week.
Blessings to you,
