Come They Told Me!

CCEE1134 Gold wm

Hi all!

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This month our hostess Charlene Merrick,  has been surfing the net for some interesting facts Each week, she has been giving us an interesting fact and an operative word that must be used for the inspiration of your design.

INTERESTING FACT: "The streets of Victor, Colorado, once a gold rush town, are paved with low-grade gold."

For my card today I decided to use Flourishes Drummer Boy stamp set, this one has been on my wish list for a while now Smile. I used gold card for all my layers as well as adding gold brads to the to the top right hand side of my card and the centre of my poinsettia flower. I also used a gold pen to color in the base of the drummer boy and the brad on his uniform.
