I haven’t been joining challenges lately, and have found I’ve not been motivated much to make cards. After last weeks “Just Us Girls” challenge, I decided to join them again. (BTW, I won the IBS $25 gift certificate with that challenge!)
This week’s challenge is to incorporate gold into your card. I haven’t used gold on any of my cards for some months, so I was quite excited about this one.
Here’s what I came up with:
The stamps used on this card are both from Inspired by Stamping. The dies are from Spellbinders – Labels Eight, and Majestic Labels Eight.
The embossing folder you can see peeking through at the back, is the Rose EF from Kaisercraft.
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
I am adding this card to the Inspired by Stamping customer gallery.
it’s beautiful Cheryl! I missed this, I must go see if I can still join in or if it’s too late! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks Karen. So glad I inspired you!
Thank you, Sharyn. I’ve had these dies for ages, but rarely use them. I’ve decided I need to get out the dies I don’t use much, and give them a good working out!
Thanks so much, Donna! I’m pretty happy about the way this one turned out.
Well, apparently taking a break from card making has really paid off as this is really gorgeous and I love the colors your chose to go with the gold. Awesome work my friend!
Hi Cheryl, So glad we motivated you to make a card! Love the touch of gold too! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls and congrats on your win last week!
Love how you have used those dies Cheryl and the soft colour you chose. Love that Happy Birthday font.

Thanks Ina. Yes, the colours are very soft.
Thanks Lisa. I never thought of it as a celebration, but I’m very happy to call it that!
This is GORGEOUS, Cheryl! The colors are wonderful, the layering is magnificent, and I adore that double bow! Thank you so much for joining us at Inspired By Stamping! HUGS! 🙂 Mynn xx

Thanks so much, Mynn! I felt the label was too empty, so used the bows to fill it up!
Beautiful Cheryl! Love your die and such a pretty colour!
