And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Everything's Turning Up Gold!

Hello friends!  Metallics seem to be a current trend, especially gold, so my card for today was made for several gold challenges and of course to add to my Christmas stash!

Creative Nugget:  Freshly Made Sketch 211 was used for the design of this card and the colors came from the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Color Challenge for this week.  The new Flourished Merry Christmas stamp by ODBD was masked, stamped repeatedly, and gold embossed on the card front.  A circle was cut from the side and a little gold frame made using the Circle Ornament and Matting Circle Dies.  The card front was popped up onto a Boho Background die cut and some Christmas Collection 2015 paper.  The poinsettia was made with the Peaceful Poinsettia, Merry Mosaics, and Lovely Leaves Dies.  All of the gold on this card was embossed so everything matches.  Metallic gold thread and gold pearls were added to finish the card.
(Links to the products used will be added when the web site is back up.)

The shine of the gold can be seen a little better with this view.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...Hope you were inspired to create something gold!
