Copic Creations Challenge ~ Gold



Hello!  Thanks for visiting today.   Time for another Copic Creations Challenge.  This week we are focusing on the color GOLD.   Our awesome sponsor is I Brake for Stamps.  They have an amazing selection of over 3,000 stamps!!    The prize for one lucky participant is TWO full sheets of stamps!   And, if the winner happens to use an IBFS image, Della, the owner, is throwing in an additional sheet!!    Very cool prize. 

The CCDT was able to choose an image from I Brake for Stamps for our card this week.   Meet the handsome Mr. Nutcracker




All the DP used on this card is from Graphic 45 – I just love every single piece of paper this company makes!   I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Six and Labels Nine for my center shapes, and added some Gold Corduroy Foil paper on the side.   The brads are from American Crafts Elements – they are medium Glitter Brads.  And, finally, the little holly sprig is from Martha Stewart and edged in gold.

You really HAVE to take a look at the GORGEOUS Copic Creations Design Team cards for this challenge!   And, I hope you can join us for a chance to win this awesome prize! 

Thanks for stopping by.
