Gold Smooches!

It's Anything Goes at Paper Smooches SPARKS this week, and OMG I'm so excited. I'll spread them out over the week but expect to see a whole bunch of Smoochy goodness :) I'm also adding this card to the Moxie Fab World "All that Glitters is Gold" challenge. I had said to someone a while back that I was having trouble adding gold - it just isn't the metallic colour I tend to reach for. To help with that, every time I reach for silver I've started grabbing the gold too, and most of the time end up using gold instead.


Supplies: Paper Smooches stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black & Gray Flannel inks; Versamark; Stampendous Pirate Gold EP; black rhinestones & gold metallic paper from Dollarama


I wanted to have music notes stamped by the sentiment but my attempt on scrap paper was too dark - so on the card itself I stamped off once before stamping on the card. (It's really early...forgive the confusing way I said that.)

xoxo,
Jessi

I love gold--(might need to use your system to make myself switch to silver more often) & this came out great!

What a cute card! All those cassettes make me a little nostalgic! I was talking to a much younger friend today, and she had never heard of the bands I remember being my favs as a teenager. Made me feel very dated. I'll bet she's never even heard a cassette played. :)
