HM&FMC #160 Mid Way - Gold or Silver

Well here we are just about to start a whole new year.  Boy are they flying by.  We have a one month long challenge over at House Mouse & Friends to use gold or silver and we are at our half way point so I'm here with a card using both gold and silver.  As you can see my gold is in the candle holder and outlining the die piece.  The circular mat and back panel are both SU! Silver card stock.  

I colored my image with Copics, cut it out and matted it with SB dies.  I used the SU! Square Lattice embossing folder as well as the  Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out with a SU! jewelry tag. I ran some gold cord though the tag and around the corner.   The flower is a punch I've had for eons and it does not have a name on it.  I added a blue gem to it and I was done.  It is always nice to be able to put together a simple quick card during this time of year.    Please stop by House Mouse & Friends and see all the great inspiration the Design Team has put together for you.

  10. Donna, this is so adorable! The embossed pieces add so much! I love your color combo and how you put it all together!

  11. This is a fabulous card Donna, such an adorable image and you've coloured it beautifully. I love how you have included both gold and silver in your design and your embossed panels add wonderful texture.
    I'm so looking forward to creating our House-Mouse projects next year.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

  12. This is just the sweetest card, and so beautifully colored. I'm really impressed with your gold outlining the diecut. Did you use a signo pen or krylon? I can never get a decent thin & even line with either of those. Wish Copic would create a gold & silver multiliner pen! This had the perfect mat & great colors to show off this delightful HM image. Happy New Year & TFS. HUGS

  13. This is adorable, and I love the embossed blue background! The way you edged that die cut with gold looks phenomenal!! That little mouse is dreaming of the great new year I'm wishing you :)
