Birthday Gold

It's Sunday and we're watching the US play Portugal in the World Cup.  Very exciting!  My knowledge of all the rules of soccer (or more correctly, futbol) is pretty limited, but it has been interesting to watch nevertheless.  Go USA!

But you came here to see a card, so I guess I better get on with sharing what I made today:

The great sketch this week at Pals Paper Arts ( was the inspiration for this card.  I saw the banner on the sketch and decided to pile some additional banners along with some gold embellishments on top.

My plan was for a monochromatic gold and white card, but I felt is was lacking something when I started to put it together.  So, I decided to add a pop of color with the Bermuda Bay banner and the ink used for the sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by today and taking a look!  Be sure to head over to the PPA blog, there is still time to play, plus there's also a lot of great inspiration.

Ooo, la, la, lovely! That pop of Bermuda Bay is gorgeous with all the gold. Fun, sassy & elegant all at the same time. Thanks so much for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!
