It's Golden

The Viva la Verve Sep05 challenge was another great sketch by Amber - and the twist....specialty paper. I had yet to touch this gold paper that I'd had for quite a while, realizing only too well after the fact that it's bold. I love patterned paper and specialty paper, but I seem to just collect it an it never sees a card, so this was a perfect time to try it out.

Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Verve Circular Sayings
Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Autumn Vine DSP, Gold
Ink: Galaxy Gold Dew Drop, Chocolate Chip Craft, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Nestabilities, CB Script Embossing Folder, Gold Embossing Powder, Sponge

I won't even go into details about how much work went into this card....let's just say some people need to pay attention when they are attaching their main panel to the base...because if you're not careful and you attach it upside down, you may end up creating an additional layer and trimming that to fit onto a whole new dark base.

Not saying I did that....just that it's been known to happen to stampers...I've heard =)

Off to a wedding of some great friends today and I'm so glad to be able to attend. I've been friends with the groom for almost 10 years and they're perfect together!

Oh yes - and on October 2nd, the talented people at Digital-Ink Co will be having a Falloween Blog Hop! This will be the first blog hop I've ever participated in and in addition to the prizes they're offering, I'm thinking I might have to do a little celebrating, as well. I'm just having so much fun and I want to thank y'all for that. Oh....and my Patriots aren't doing so hot, so I'm aiming to bring a little good juju into my life =) I hope you'll join me and the other ladies!
