August 19, You've got This


In real life this card is so much more "metallic" and really shines.  I made this card totally for a challenge over at The House of Cards which this month was "metallic".  I was looking through my supplies of "hoarded" stuff and ran across this and I don't even remember what it is called or where I got it but I know I have had it for a long time!!!  I embossed the sheet of Metallic cs with an embossing folder,  then embossed this flower from SU on a white ice silver curious metallic cs from The Paper Cut fussy cut it out as well as the sentiment.  Found some sheer ribbon with metallic threads and the card was complete.  I really like the way it turned out.  Challenges:
     House of Cards - metallic
     Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
     Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes
     Tuesday Throwdown - texture

Pretty Shirley and I've been admiring that flower stamp but haven't broken down and purchased it yet. hehe It's fun to shop the stash of hoarded stuff!

Love your idea of embossing the metallic cs. I have some foil papers, and maybe this would work for them, too. Great card! Thanks for the inspiration, and have a wonderful weekend.
