SAF 2017 Year 8 Anniversary Traditional gift is BRONZE by Jessica Frost-Ballas

We are winding down...made this card last night, but had to wait until this morning to take a picture and get it posted.  I had to mix my own bronze embossing powder using gold and copper.  It looks really pretty!  I decided to leave the sentiment in white because their was just too much of the bronze going on. and it blended in to the background...I like it this way because the message really pops out.

Hi friends, had fun with Jessica's challenge, you can check it out HERE.
