Going For Gold

This card is all about the gold. I wanted to play with my new Teresa Collins stencils and texture paste so I grabbed a premade card base and played. The stencil pattern turned out really nice - I wanted to do the fan/scallop one but the size was too large for a card. Taking the base card colour as my cue I built the card from there. The card was made based on the March sketch from DCWV so I chose coordinating papers from A Type of Art stack by DCWV for my pennants so I could enter it on their competition. Because it has pennants on it I can also enter in into the latest challenge at Southern Girls Challenge - Swinging in the Breeze.  I also specifically used my new Hero Arts birthday stamps that I chose as part of my prize from them so I could enter it in their birthday challenge. I will also enter it in Inspiration Emporium's A Splash of Colour challenge again too. There's a lot riding on this one little card:
