Going for 'GOLD'

It's Challenge Time again over at Shopping Our Stash
 and they are going for 'GOLD' this week.
 You can find all the details Here.
How fabulous is that!
Here is the card I will enter for this challenge.
As you can see I went with lots of gold.
I love using my SU Four Feathers Stamp/Die Set
and this is what I used here.
I heat embossed 2 of the feathers with
Stamp It gold embossing powder
and the third I embossed with clear embossing powder
on bright blue paper for contrast.
I used the same paper for my card base.
I added a strip of gold with a stencil from
ARTplorations called Plaid Maker 
 I like the effect I got from not making 3 solid lines.
This was inked up with ColorBlast Paste.
I also added a bit more to the back of the feathers with
STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge
and stamped it quickly cleaning it before it dried and
a few dollops of blue ColorBlast Paste
 Spritzed a little with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers.
My sentiment is the CUTplorations Hello Word die
cut 3 times and the top one heat embossed
the same as the feather.
Finished off with a little blue bow.

I am also adding this to the 

and their CUTplorations Challenge Here
Hope you like what you see and leave a comment.
Thanks for dropping in today. Till next time
