GO FOR GOLD!

Today's 'Little Extra' from DCM is:

This time we are giving you just One Word as the inspiration for your card making and that word is GOLDEN You can use the word in any way you like - the word itself doesn't even have to be on the card, for instance you could make a card in golden shades, or maybe inspired by the seasons of Spring or Autumn which both feature lots of golden colours. Or maybe you could make a card to celebrate a Golden Anniversary, and of course Gold is a great colour for Christmas cards.....It's up to you - just go for Gold.

Although all the gold looks silver on the photo, I promise I used gold mirri card, gold peel offs, gold brads, a gold coin, gold ink and made a gold tassel.
I don't know why I went Oriental, I don't even particularly like it, but there we go, and the peel offs and papers needed using!

Not been blogging for a few days as I feel ill and am dosed up with paracetamol and not even up to crafting, but at least DCM got me a little bit interested - thanks! Back to bed now for me :-(

What a great card Juliet but such a shame that the photo doesn't show it in all it's glory.
