Black and Gold

LOVE this colour combo! You may remember from an earlier post that I was going to get a Silhouette Cameo back in October as a way of getting myself through the extraction of a tooth root. I had got myself in a right freaky state over the prospect of it and I thought a Silhouette would help! In the event, I felt a right fraud. I was in and out in less than fifteen minutes, never felt a thing and had no pain or swelling afterwards (lucky I know!) So, the Sihouette became an early Christmas present instead, but I'm glad it's here now!

My card is for Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas which is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. It is inspired by Linda's wonderful Week 2 tag. I have used her black and gold colour scheme and have also incorporated the rays and stars. The sentiment was cut using my Silhouette and I then embossed it with gold embossing powder. The ray stamp is from SU's Kinda Eclectic and I have added some Glimmer Paper stars and large black sequins. I backed it onto a Brushed Gold cardstock base. Hope you like it!

I'd also like to enter my card in the Cards in Envy Very Vintage challenge. I do think the rays and sentiment give my card a vintage vibe, even though I suppose it is also quite modern looking.

I'd also like to enter the Our Creative Corner challenge where the theme of the month is stars.

Have a crafty weekend! April x
