Golden Fun-Filled Friday

Well its another Friday! Time sure flies from week to week. This week Jen challenged me to make a card with precious metals in mind. Initially this was pretty difficult for me but once I started going I couldn't stop myself! Here is what I came up with for this challenge :

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold, used my gold metallic marker on the edges, gold ribbon, and gold embellishments. For the bottom of the card I used one of my border punches then colored over it with my gold metallic marker. It was kind of fun. The whole idea came from the piece of pattern paper I found. I thought the colors went so well with gold. I also love paisley prints, but never seem to use them - I don't know why. Don't forget to check out Jen's card for this week.

  • sentiment by Paper Inspirations
  • card stock by Bazzill, pattern paper by Creative Imaginations - Terra Cotta Paisley
  • miscellaneous - Ranger princess gold embossing powder, heat gun, ribbon by Joann's, gold embellishments by Oriental Trading, gold metallic marker by Pen Touch, Fiskars lace border punch.

Did you come up with anything for this challenge? Do you have any suggestions for future challenges you would like to see? Let me know I am always up for something to get my creative juices flowing.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend - any big plans? It's my weekend to work so nothing for me.

Sunday we will announce our next Fun-Filled Friday challenge so make sure you stop in to see what it is.

Happy Crafting,
