Color Throwdown #54


Yesterday was an absolute gorgeous day which was perfect for the golf tourney with my husbands company. The golf course was in wonderful shape and I actually didn't shoot too bad.

Today I am off on a shopping excursion with my BFF Tracy to hunt down some new rubber.....or whatever tickles our fancy and let me tell you "we like to get our fancy tickled".


This card was created for the Color Throwdown challenge. I started with a black base which was layered with BG decorative paper, added a decorative edge to each side of the DP and wrapped in black ribbon. The image was stamped in versa mark where I sprinkled on 4 different colours of embossing powder and heat set. The image really does glitter and sparkle just didn't show that so much in the picture.
