24 karat friend...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made for the current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge (mixing Essentials by Ellen products with Pretty Pink Posh products), as well as the current Fusion challenge.  I think I will also post this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of touchy feely since the glitter paper has a nice texture to it.   For the challenge I used the Essentials by Ellen Hello Gorgeous set and since the only Pretty Pink Posh products I own are sequins I used those  (4mm gold and 6mm sparkling clear).  Obviously I only followed the sketch portion of the Fusion challenge.  I die cut my panel from white cardstock and then die cut a strip of gold glitter paper using the same die for a cleaner look.  A thin strip of black cardstock was cut to add additional contrast.  I stamped the gems using Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then over stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Love how it turned out.  Finished things off with the sequins, but I'm not super pleased with how they look.  Definitely need to get some PPP 6mm gold sequins... not really sure why I don't have any, lol!  I must say that the Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins are some of the prettiest I have seen.  The gold is a nice warm gold... love it!


Thanks for stopping by today...
