Silver & gold 1 
I am popping in with a card.  I am playing along with this month's PTI December 2014 Blog Hop!   This month's theme is gold and silver!  I just love gold and silver with some black!


 I started with pure black base and stamped versa mark all the way around and clear embossed.  I love the black lacquered look finish it gives to set off the shimmer of the silver and gold brushed card stock.  I used the Phrase Play #1 die. I die cut it with brushed gold card stock and filled it in with brushed silver card stock.  For the sentiment I die cut the frame again in pure black card stock.  I white embossed the sentiment.    Then, to keep with the black lacquered base, I stamped versa mark over and clear embossed.  I popped this frame up with foam tape.  I added some white threading for contrast and to add some whimsy.  I finished with some silver sequins. 


I am playing along with Stampin' Celebrate Challenge, too!

As always thanks so much for hopping by!
