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!

PTI Anniversary Day 6 "Heavy Metal Challenge"

OOH LA LA, it is all about the gold (or silver!),
I went with the gold!
I gold embossed Ruby Reprise and a few elements from Ruby Rose on vellum paper,
the scroll is die cut and embossed from Boutique Borders: Birthday and the sentiment from Keep It Simple: Birthday!
I added some gold Metallic Thread under the scroll, adds a nice touch I think!
I framed the top and bottom with gold metallic paper that I picked up at Michael's quite awhile ago.
I love how this card turned out!
One more day to play, I leave on Friday for California, I hope I will have time to make something early in the morning before I have to leave for the airport...depends whether I sleep or not!!
I am going to 73 degrees and sunshine!!


  1. Gorgeous. I love all the gold elements.

  2. Colleen, this is just fabulous! I love the detail the gold thread adds. Stunning work!

  3. WOW! I have never seen such a pretty card with gold flowers before, fab job!

  4. What a pretty and elegant card Colleen! Love how you used the gold cording behind the sentiment...really nice touch! :0)

  5. Beautiful!
    And so jealous you're going to 70 degree temps and sunshine...
    but have a wonderful trip!

  6. I love how this turned out too!!!!! Ist gorgeous! No it's perfect! I love the touch of gold thread! I won't tell you that we are in the high 80 degrees . But it cools down fast
