It seems like gold accents are popping up everywhere these days and I am liking what I see of the trend on handmade cards lately! I was able to try my hand at making one because this week’s cue word challenge over at CASology is GOLD!
I happened to remember (something that doesn’t happen very frequently these days) a mosaic Stampin’ Up! set I have in my stash and it dawned on me that my metallic gold ink might just be what I needed to make a card for the challenge! I’d looked through my embossing powders and spritz sprays already with no luck and the spool of gold cord I came across just didn’t do it for me! Thank goodness for light bulb moments!
|Stamps: SU (Mosaic), Paper Trey (sentiment)
Paper: Paper Trey cardstock (white), SU cardstock (Basic Black)
Ink: Encore (Gold), Memento (Tuxedo Black)

Don’t forget to spend a little time visiting the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog for lots of beautiful inspiration! It’s always interesting to see what the weekly cue words trigger in creative minds! I can’t wait! Be sure and link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CDT) for your chance to win a little prize package! CASology is celebrating its one year anniversary this week!
