Hi Bloggers,

       This year i wanted try new things so my New Year Resolutions were; Try baking, More crafting, Start Blogging and Try new ideas and styles in my cards, so when i saw the challenge at The Stamping Boutique Make a card using Gold colours in it, I thought i would have a go, i normally make cards using pastels or bright colours and dont think i have made a card with gold for a very long time, so i set to work with one of the new Magnolia Tilda Stamps, and some Magnolia papers perfect for this challenge,
I coloured my image with copics and distressed all the edges using Tim Holtz distress inks, I matted my papers onto Gold Card, and heres how it turned out...
Actually i am quite pleased with it! lol
Also the challenge at Magnolia Down Under was to recycle something, so see the goldy brown ribbon, Down the middle panel, That came off an old Silk Nighty and the White Leaves i punched out of an old gift bag my birthday present came in, it was ripped,lol

This is a downside view..

Sentiment-Whimsy spring sentiments
Handmade Roses,Lace,Pin,Metal Corner-WOC
Nesti-Scalloped Circle
Mediums-Copic Sketch/Ciao
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
MGill leaf punch

I Hope you like my new style card, quite vintagey, if thats a word,lol
I am entering my card at the following challenges;-
