Keryn's dare this week...

Going back over my cards I seem to have a liking for gold as an accent colour. So this week I'd like you to make a card for any season or occasion but must include gold somewhere. It could be a brad, metallic card, heat embossing, ribbon, anything at all as long as it's gold.

I don't normally use much gold on my cards, definitely prefer silver I have a wierdy allergy to gold IRL and it seems to have transferred to my cardmaking!

I actually made this in the week, took piccies and then promptly mislaid the camera - I must apologise to the little one as he got the blame... camera finally turned up this morning, safely tucked away under a pile of Jase's stuff..... grrr :)



I went to the NEC last weekend, was a little bit disappointed at the bits to buy and managed to spend a grand total of £3.40 on Rusty Pickle paper - used here.

I also used.... Cuttlebug flowers, Paperchase Ribbon, BG chipboard, hand cut heart, doodling, stitching, inking and gold brads, a gold paper fastener and a gold safety pin.

More apologies needed as this card is actually for my Mum and Dad as I managed to completely forget their wedding anniversary - how totally bad is that? - Sorry lots.

This is stunning Jo, absolutely gorgeous. I'm not too into using or wearing gold either but I really like the gold accents on this, they warm up those cool colours beautifully.
