Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #75

Hi everyone. Gosh the entries for the last challenge were all fabulous, congratulations everyone.

The photo for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge has such an opulent look with the rich red and sparkly bits, I know you will find it filled with inspiration for your card creations. 
Click on the photo to take you to the challenge on Lesley's blog, Always Playing With Paper.











The challenge required Champagne gold. After a bit of thought, I found a gold embossed paper that I have had for some time. It is non-porous.
I dabbed a dry tissue in Pink Stazon ink and gently rubbed it on the gold, to make champagne gold!




Stamps:- Hero Arts sentiment (CL 359)
Inks:-Versafine black, Stazon Pink
Dies:-Spellbinders circle and Persian Motifs, Lil'inker Bow Small
Card:- Neenah white, Bazzill Linen white, classic Vanilla, Gold?
Embellishments:- buttons, fine rainbow glitter ?

Join in the challenge fun. Thanks for calling by.
