I seem to be on a gold kick today! Actually, I made this card last month, or the month before, for a One Layer Wednesday challenge, and I don't think I ever posted it. I really made a mess of it and didn't think it was worth posting.
My daughter thought otherwise so let's see what you think!
I believe the challenge was to use something metallic on the card. I stamped everything in Encore Gold and embossed with gold.
I thought it needed something around the edge, so I edged it with the gold and embossed that. Got a smudge in the top left corner! Aaargh! I hate it when I do that!
Looking for something to camouflage the smudge, I found the little dot stamp from the retired Bird on a Branch set, inked it in gold and stamped in the corners. I didn't really like it any better than the smudge!
Today's Free for All Challenge on SCS was to use a silhouette stamp. Everything is packed up for tomorrow's Stamp Stack, so I'm going to put this in, since the bird is in silhouette.
If nothing else, it's a lesson in camouflaging your mistakes!
