Gold Rush!

Gold is so on trend right now...every time I flipped through a magazine or browse at the shops, I always see GOLD!
I saw these images from Pinterest...aren't they gorgeous?
Chevron Gold Decorative Cachepot 7I would feel so fancy eating with this!
Today I am on the Gold Rush and joining the fun over Moxie Fab World's All That Glitters is Gold Challenge.

Sun is my inspiration and this is what I did...I used Party Dots  
from Neat And Tangled. I first stamped the large circle several times. I chose to use textured card stock (American Craft), it is not perfectly inked and that's actually kind of neat. I used two different kinds of gold embossing powder. The smooth one is for the circles and the coarse powder is for the sentiment. I added more gold sequins and added some gold glitter. 

Thanks for stopping by!

The gold is fabulous, Virginia. I think the texture of the paper adds a lot of visual interest to your stamping.
