On The Hop

Hi everyone! Are you ready for something a little different today? Well the Flourishes team decided that every Friday, we are all going to create a hop for you to join us as we offer you inspiration, tips, ideas, and virtual card eye candy for you to enjoy as you hop through! I'd say that's a pretty fantastic start your weekends!

So without further ado, here is my card. Our team leader, Vicki Dutcher, challenged us to use Gold on our creations this week, so that's what I did.

I stamped out A Mother's Hug sentiment on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, and heat embossed it in gold. Then I used various Spellbinders to create frames to frame the sentiment beautifully. I added metallic gold pearls in various places to re-emphasize the gold theme. I added the Maya Arts Taupe silk ribbon as an accent, under the sentiment label.

I hope I didn't go too overboard with the gold, but I love how it turned out!! I absolutely love mixing and combining Spellbinders dies to create lovely windows and creations like this.

Take a look to see what the other DT members have created with the challenge to use Gold on their cards and creations.

Amanda Havon - you are here!
Happy crafting everyone, I'll see you next Friday on the hop, where the theme is "Add Some Sparkle"!
