It's a celebration

Hi everyone! I was inspired by the following picture and challenge this month over at Papertry, Ink.






It's all about using gold and silver in your creation. Here is what I did with it.



Sentiment comes from the Birthday Bash set. I stamped it in Versamark and then heat embossed using silver embossing powder.

The sparklers are an old stamps from Lizzie Anne Designs. It too, is stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

The rectangle stitched die is used to cut it out and then backed with a layer of black cardstock. Die is from Lil' Inker Designs. The stitched fishtail banners are from My Favorite Thing and I used some gold and silver mirror cardstock to match the embossing.

This card could be used for an anniversary, birthday or a New Years cards. Surprised how versatile it ended up being. The background in the picture is a bit dark due to me fiddling with it to make the embossing stand out. Oh well, it works.  Thanks for hopping by!
