SHOPPING OUR STASH #287 - All That Glitters is Gold

Hello crafty peeps! It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! For this week's prompt, we want to see GOLD on your cards or projects.
Here is what I came up with:

 and the inside:

I bought this stamp set last year and this is the first time I inked her up. NBUS! She's stamped directly to the front of my kraft card base, and colored with Prisma Color pencils. I accented the image by adding gold dots with a gold Gelly Roll pen. I then die cut that gorgeous flower frame from gold foil paper and glued it around the image. I sponged brown ink around the edges. On the inside, I cut a panel from kraft, stamped the sentiment, and sponged more brown ink around the edges, then dragged a gold ink pad along the edges also.

Now it's your turn to play along! Just link up your card or project at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it! For more inspiration, check out what my teammates and our Guest Designer, Marina, created for your viewing pleasure.

Just a reminder: We are looking for Guest Designers! If you'd like to be considered for February, simply leave a 'DT' after your name when you link up. Easy peasy!

Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
