Hello friends,

I hope you are having a good weekend.  I wanted to share a card I made for the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  This week's trend watch is all about gold and here's my take on the challenge:

PS- Congratulations

When I first saw the Digits set, I loved how the 8 looked like two interlocking circles or wedding bands.  To achieving this look, I embossed the 8 in gold and added the diamond from Little Lady and the sentiment from Simply Said- also embossed with gold. I matted the stamped panel onto gold shimmer paper and a little twirly, scrolly ribbon finished off the card.

You have until Sunday night, June 9, 2012 to link up your take on this week's challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!
