All that glitters is not gold....

Or in this case, all that is gold does not necessarily glitter!

In this case I have gone for a matt gold, rather than a glittery gold effect......quite unusual for me as I usually like to add a bit of glitter at every opportunity!

For this card I have coloured in one of the new Teddies from Stamp Addicts, using my Spectrum Noirs.

I then die cut and oval in to my base card  and attached the bear at the top and bottom. He was meant to be hanging free, but he kept twisting round for some reason, and, since the back is not as attractive as the front, I had to make sure he was secured properly in place!!

The gorgeous gold die cuts are from a lovely Marianne die, and I can't believe how beautifully embossed they have come out.

I have a few challenges which Iwould like to enter this card in to........
