Dream Big

I love the trend of sparkly gold papers and embellishments recently. This month's special, Year>>Noted has a perfect color and pattern combination for adding such golden bits! It relates to several fashion trends in the retail stores also! My card today started with the sketch on Freshly Made Sketches. It is a very simple layered design on the upper half of the card, however I may have added a few more layers!!


As I mentioned earlier the papers come from the new Year>>Noted paper collection. You can see more about this special in the Current Specials tab at the top or click the image at the right. I used an older chipboard star that I covered with gold glitter paper. You can see just a little bit of gold dotted vellum in the background from an older monthly special. Finally, some gold sequin makes it perfectly polished!
