Silver & Gold Challenge at Double D

Our last challenge for the year 2016 at Double D
is Silver & Gold
being hosted by Team Darlene
and using the mood board below for inspiration.

It was rather fun to get out of the Christmas mode
and into something a bit different.
I had 'heart-ed' a dream catcher die
and looked at many beautiful ones until I settled on this one from
I loved the size and all the pretty details in the embossing it had.

It's a pretty clean and simple card using just the gold and silver for details.

I stamped a splatter background in silver
as well as the sentiment (which I have a 'booboo' 'e' isn't quite 'there')....
it happens and I was not redoing as I had stamped the sentiment 4 times
and the results were the same, so I am thinking my 'e' is not quite perfect!

I simply added a silver cord bow, a few gold sequins to finish.
I will probably use this for one of the 'older' grandkids birthdays.

Now, pop on over and check out our fabulous inspirations from the
designs teams.... you will LOVE them!

Also wanted to mention that we have all new
fantastic mood boards created and ready to go
for 2017 that you will love....
make sure and come and check them out 'next year'!!

What a beautifully detailed die! Wow! I'm not sure how to get the Spellbinders dies embossed since I switched to a Big Shot. There must be a way. Your sprinkles and sequins add to the magic of this. Too bad about your sentiment stamp. I've had that happen to some. This is a good one, too, which I still have, as well. Crazy busy this week. Trying to keep up visiting, but if I'm not back I'll leave you with a wish for a very Merry Christmas!
