Double D Challenge - Silver & Gold

Hello friends . . .
Today begins a new challenge at the 
Team Darlene is hosting today's challenge and the chosen
theme is . . .
Here's the tile board created for your inspiration  . . .
 With it being such a busy time of year, I took the easy route
today and turned to die cuts for today's creation.

By using both silver & gold, this 'love'ly card could be used for
either a Silver Anniversary or a Golden Anniversary.

I've used silver foil paper as my background panel then die cut the 
Cheery Lynn Designs 'Lattice Heart & Vines (B368) and
the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Love' (B227) from Gold Metallic Foil paper.

A touch of sparkle from silver & gold sequins was
the only embellishments this card needed.

OH!  and did you know there's also a prize being offered?  
Yep!  And, this time around it's this fabulous 
Sue Wilson Festive Collection 'Merry Christmas' die.

I hope you'll have a little spare time to come join in our challenge.

Till next time and as always . . .

Beautiful design. Love how you mixed the silver and gold sequins on the shiny background and let you die cut be the star.

This would make a gorgeous anniversary card! Or a wedding card. Or a Valentine. It's so pretty all sprinkled up with the sequins, too. You and Diane make the BEST inspiration boards! Busy days leading up to Christmas, now. It doesn't seem to slow down. Enjoy!

This is so elegant! I love it! Sorry for the late comment. I would like to invite you to link with us again for our first Challenge this year at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement found in 1 John 4:18-19 which tells us, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." Have a blessed day!
