HINTS OF GOLD

I think i may have started things off with my post yesterday about snowflakes, we have had real ones here in Bedford today!!! It's most unusual for us to have snow before Christmas in this part of the world! :)
Just a quickie tonight, Darren,Justine and Danielle have been here today as usual on a Sunday, and also Alan, Chloe's boyfriend was here for dinner as well, so full house, full table and tired me!!The dare this week at DCM is to use some gold on your card. I created this card with some hints of gold using different things.

148mm card which i have covered with one sheet from the 'Figgy Pudding' 6 x 6 pad. I also used a brown paper for the matting and layering. The image is stamped with Ranger Sepia archival onto white card which i stippled, also with Sepia using a Dove brush. I then added some gold accents to the background using Tsukineko Brilliance in 'Galaxy Gold' and two texture stamps from Laxmi designs. I edged this with a Gold Krylon pen. The berries on the holly are Swarovski crystals and i also added some platinum Stickles to the leaves and bauble. Finally some small gold brads to finish.
The stamp is from Penny Black called 'Brush Ornament' I hope you like it!
