One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday ~ SILVER AND GOLD

Hi Friends!  One week until Christmas and this challenge is all about Silver and Gold for your birthday card!
It just so happens I have a niece whose birthday is December 24!
I thought of her when I made this silver and gold card...that is the topping for this challenge.
She will be 27, so I think she will like this card!
The topping is SILVER & GOLD!
Of course you can always make any kind of a birthday card if you are not into toppings!
Stamps:  Mama Elephant: Make a Wish
Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder, Filigree Gold EP, and WOW Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter
SSS Diagonal Stencil
Inkssentials silver foil tape
