Gold, lots of Gold... and then some, with bells on!

A better piccie - the other one is too dark
I'd never made anything using a great deal of gold. Well, I have  now. Tonight I used the lid of my embossing powder, pushed it in the stamp pad and embossed circles on the tag - it was really good fun! I used several different shades of gold embossing powders. The little hearts at the bottom used a variety of effects learnt during the 12 Tags of Christmas and were cut out freehand. I had so much fun making this!


I am entering this card into the 'Gold' challenge at Sunday Stamper - after the goldrushand also the blogger challenge 'Wings and Things:http://www.lisasomerville.com/2012/01/wingsandthings-bloggers-challenge.html
