Just Us Girls in Metallic!

Hello friends!
Welcome to the weekend!
I'm here as this month's GDT to share a brand new challenge over at
Just Us Girls 

The fun new challenge for this week is:
There are so many different ideas you can do with this theme and they have given you several good examples to spring-board ideas from!

Here's the creation that I've decided to make for it:
I have loads of metallic papers and always seem to try and hoard them so much! :)  So I've decided that this year is the year that I will pull them out and use some because they are so pretty and eye-catching!  For this particular card, I'm not quite sure what I want to use for it yet so I decided to keep the sentiment off or when the time comes write/stamp a message on the inside.

The dotted gold foil vellum comes from Stampin' Up! and I have a great package of this that hardly gets used because I think I need to keep it for some reason?!  Do you ever do that or am I just the silly one here?!!  Both the Gold Foil card stock and the die cut butterfly comes from My Favorite Things.  (LOVE that butterfly set!)  I've embossed the Gold Foil and White card stock strip with a scripty word embossing folder which also came from SU!  I've added some gold metallic thread looped underneath the butterfly for added extra "metallic-ness".

Here's a closer look at the butterfly:
I think the gold metallic looks stunning as it reflects the light from the other gold on the card design.

Anyway, I hope that my design has inspired you in some way to play along with us this week!
Be sure to check out the rest of the stunning design from the lovely ladies over on the challenge blog!  I'm sure they'll "knock your socks off"!

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you again tomorrow!!

Vicki, I love this and yes I have to admit it is hard so hard to use our precious little pretties. I love gold and shimmer and silver and glossy and hold onto anything special for way too long. Love that vellum and all the gold, its perfect.

This is truly gorgeous and as elegant as it can get and I love every little detail of it.
I hoard papers. I've come to realize I should use my favorite ones first, before they loose their glory. Does that make sense? I think it does...
