It’s a Color Challenge with a Midas Touch!

I do love to work with color challenges!  And this week we have a new one!  The challenge is GOLD!  That’s the only ‘given’.  You can mix and match with any other colors that you would like!  I don’t know about you, but this gives me a perfectly good reason to use the Gold Foil Patterns Paper Packet!

So, I will admit, that I didn’t know what exactly I was going to do at first.  I wanted to use the gold foil paper packet and the new Daisy Meadows paper packet.  I didn’t know which of the papers from either packet, so I went and played on Pinterest.  I found the start of a great idea, and went with it!

How beautiful is that paper??  So, when you get the gold foil patterns paper packet, it is white paper with gold foil.  No other colors.  So, I grabbed the water color pencils and added some in!  I didn’t want to use the markers, because those will also color the foil, and if I’m being honest, I didn’t want to have to be that careful!  LOL!!  

The sentiment is stamped in peacock ink to match the background paper.  I added two of the tiny pink dots from the Daisy Meadows dots to the right side to create the visual triangle.  This card went together really quickly, even with the coloring!  Join me at 5pm as I make this card over on my FB page!

Gold Foil Pattern Papers

These are the patterns of the paper packet, aren’t they fun?

I encourage you to play along with both H2H in their bi-monthly challenges and also with me in my 52 weeks of Cards challenge!

I would love to hear what you think of this card!  Which of the gold foil patterns is YOUR favorite?
