Golden Gratitude

Papertrey Ink is celebrating another day of their eighth anniversary, this time with silver and gold.  They introduced new Luxe Metallics papers.  The look is beautiful!  They also announced this year's Stamp-a-faire which has a Project Runway theme.  It is August 29th and everyone is welcome to join in free of charge!  The challenge today is to incorporate nothing but metallics and neutrals into a new card creation:


Wow, that was a tough one to photograph!  I gold embossed using PTI's Giga Guidelines Stamp Set onto PTI's Fine Linen and some white cs from my stash.  I has a sheet of gold foil from days of old.  My embossing powder is PSX, also from days of old.
