JB35, The Midas Touch



We're talking GOLD!! There's gold in them thar hills! Heehee! Ok enough silliness, this week's prompt over at Jingle Belles was given by faithful Belle Leslie, the crooked stamper! As I'm sure most of you know, King Midas' touch turned everything into gold...so we are to use gold to craft with. To broaden the horizon a bit, the Belles in Charge, Lauren and Stef, decided to include silver, as well as white or cream. Based on all that, here is my take on the prompt. I didn't use any silver, but I do have white and cream. Several elements of this card are from Martha Stewart...the dp, the punch (one of her punch around the page type), and the stamps. The punched element behind the bird is a textured paint sample from my HUGE collection of samples. The gold ink is from a stamp set by The Paper Company. I added some bling on the four corners of the paint sample, and rounded two of the corners of my dp and the corresponding corners of the base. I wanted to see if the punch would work on a smaller piece of paper for the sentiment, and to my pleasant surprise, it did. :) ANYway, I guess that's about all there is to tell about this card, so I'll get to posting it now...LATER!
