Hello There

Don't you love working with metallics?
Gold, copper, silver, it sure glams up anything and everything! 

The Card Concept's challenge, #65, 'Pretty Things', 
is this feminine office desk top, trimmed in shiny gold objects.

Zoned right in to the pink peonies (a favorite of mine, I just can't grow
in the Central Valley), and of course, the gold stripes on the cup.

Going with 'Classy and Elegant'
Main panel is white embossed with PTI's Peonies On Parade, a set made for watercolors!
When dry, I masked off the images and flicked on some gold paint,
which looks really rosy in the photo.
Twice cut my sentiment from white and gold card stock and PTI's Scripted.
Gold Foil dp, and pink Shimmer on right also from PTI.
All mounted on PTI's Lovely Lady Cardstock.
Far right panel is a gold washi floral, that when laid on the Lovely Lady,
allows the pink to come through the petals. Loved it!
Couldn't resist adding a few metallic sequins.
Play along for a few more days.

Also posting this card with AAA Cards, where the theme is 'Hello',
And Kylie Purtell from HLS is sponsoring a gift certificate!

I know, it says, 'CAS Game' and my card borderlines anything but CAS,
but it is rather flat, and will go through the mail...
I really tried to keep it Clean, but those sequins were calling me...

Enjoy your weekend!
