Fusion Card Challenge's Hypothesis #14

I ran out of filling materials for the Snowmen I am making for my new pattern. I am a Quilt, bag, and fabric friends designer by day (my own business), and a card maker in my spare time. Running out of materials allowed me to make a card for Fusion's card challenge.
Lovely to be able to use gold goodies on a card. The card is based on the sketch and the photo.
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
The background paper is from a DCWV Serenity Matstack pad. Lots of yummy papers in this pad, some with a bit of metallic colour.
 
I used Hero Arts Gold embossing powder for the gold stamped items. I have to say, it gives a gorgeous even finish.
  
I have owned this stamp from Stampington and Company for about 7 years. I am pleased to say it is still available. I love that it has 4 Images on one stamp (one on each of the four faces of the stamp).
Shore Cliff Trim by Christine Adolph, each image approx. 1" x 4-1/2", wood-mounted. Part of the Shore Trim series of stamps, found under Art Stamps.
