PTI Blog Hop!!! It's Golden!!

Hey Everyone!

I'm back with a project inspired by the folks over at Paper Trey Ink.  They're having a blog hop today and the challenge this month is.... (*drum roll*)

Great challenge and what a cool trend these days!  Gold is totally in!  Love it!  Here is what I conjured up!

The gold dancers are Peel Offs that were coloured in using Glitter Ritz glitters.  The sentiment stamp is from PTI embossed with gold powder.
 I made this card with my hubby in mind as the sentiment is totally for him...but realistically, there's only so many lovey-dovey cards I can give him that I know won't either find its way back into my collection or lost to the male-sentimental gods (or lack there of!).  I know he'll appreciate it but I also know that he doesn't keep secret stash of cards I give to him in a shoebox tucked away for prosperity.
Soooooo...I decided to transform this card to a scrapbook layout as I KNOW these get cherished and looked at regularly and often get displayed in the house every now and then!  Here is the converted version:
I added patterned paper from DCWV and some trim from Recollections as well as some gold heart brads and pearls.  The flourish stamps are from PTI.

Thanks PTI for the challenge and inpiration.  I'm glad I got the chance to play along this month!  Can't wait to see what everyone else has in store!

Thanks for stopping by!
