Papertrey Ink - June 2013 Blog Hop



This month's theme for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop is Gold! Not a color I use much at all, so I have to think a bit outside the box.  I was hoping to find a piece of nice shiny gold metallic card stock but of course that was not going to happen, so I used the piece with a bit of a mat finish and it looks fine to me.  I pulled out some gold embossing powder and a few gold brads that has been hanging around for sometime.  My goal was to use what I had on hand for this card, I did not want to have to go shopping for anything.  So see, quick and easy! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to peek at my card...have a great week!
