There is something magical about silver and gold.  A few touches of them an you instantly add glamour and glitz to your project!  Your challenge this month is to use BOTH silver and gold on a single project.  Think embossing powder, glitter, sequins, embellishments, shimmer cardstocks or whatever else you dream up!  Mix and match elements and have fun with the process!  We can hardly wait to see what you create!

Jacquie made this beautiful birthday card.  It was so clever to alternate the happy birthdays in gold and silver to create stripes of sorts.  Such a great idea and could be used in so many different color combinations!


Maureen P used Painted Poinsettias to create this festive holiday card.  The chinky silver glitter in contrast to the gold striped paper really makes a statement!


Mona Pendleton put together this silver and gold creation as part of her holiday thank yous.  I just love the use of white, which allows the metallics to really pop.

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please send a note off to customer service providing them with the email address you would like your gift certificate to!  And a big thank you to all those who played along!  It was wonderful seeing all of you gorgeous projects!  You are such an inspiration!
