Make My Monday Challenge #66...

Hi! The Make My Monday Challenge #66 is up. The theme this time is very simply. You need to add some gold or silver to your card.

I started with a panel from my stash that I had made ages ago. The stamp is Blissful by Penny Black. I stamped the background stamp with gold acrylic paint. After it dried I did some coloring with distress inks. Here is a closer look at the panel.

I trimmed the panel to size and also colored a piece of scrap paper with direct to paper technique. I cut this piece with a circle die. The sentiment is from the Painted Greetings set by Altenew. I stamped and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Remember to visit the Make My Monday blog for some amazing inspiration by the DT and also to link your creations.
