Hello and happy Saturday to you!
I'm just popping in with a card I made for a few challenges.

Lots of stash shopping went into this card.
The sentiment is from an American Crafts set dated back in 2008;
the cake is from an MFT set dated 2010! There are a lot of metallic touches on this card:
 the gold embossed sentiment, gold floss on the die cut tag, gold sequins. I even edged 
the tag, white die cut circle and edge of the DP in gold ink! The cake was colored 
with Spectrum Noir markers then I went over the icing with a WOS pen. 
You can see the shimmer a bit more in this pic:

Guess it's time for me to get a move on and start putting up some Christmas decorations.
There should be an icy/rain mix arriving soon to our neck of the woods, so
indoors I shall stay. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
