Day 8 - "G"

I love the look of mirror card but find it extremely hard to photograph, plus it seems to show up every fingerprint of every person who has ever been within three feet of it! A good compromise is this wonderful metallic gold card that has a brushed finish. It's still nice and shiny but without the drawbacks of a high, polished shine. And it just so happens to be my "G" word for today... gold.

What a gorgeous card Beccy. I do love mirror card but it is hard to use. I like you tip. I usually use it for mats and layers I really should be more adventurous. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Such a beautiful card. I also like the mirror card but you are right about the finger prints on them.

Stunning look with the gold behind the lattice work - and a lovely way to display an important sentiment.

Beccy, I love the elegance of the brushed gold combined with white-on-white diecut and embossing. Add your exquisite coloring and you've made a card that has a high "WOW" factor. Just beautiful.
