Crafter’s Companion Monthy Challenge–Gold

Hi all well the theme for the Crafter’s Companion Monthly Challenge is Gold. Inspired by our success at the Olympics this year.
This is the card I made for the challenge. It’s a gold and red card as you can see.


I have used one of the lovely new Christmas Strawberry Kisses Stamps. Isn’t that cat just so adorable!!!
I have stamped onto Neenah Card Stock and coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens.
The Poinsettia dies and scalloped shapes are from Marianne and I have used distress inks to highlight the detailing of the embossing. I also used the same distress ink on the lace so it would tie in with the card theme.
I have used my Woodware Border punch to create the border strip and I have monted this onto gold mirror card and added two different ribbons for detail.
The backing paper on the card is from the SWALK winter collection CD. The corner plates are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
