I Never Use Gold!

I'm still making Valentine's Day cards, which is so much fun! I am also digging through my paper stash so that I can donate a whole pile of it to Beth Silaika and her amazing fundraising effort for Hannah's Hope Fund. I'm so glad I can help! This paper has been part of my collection for no less than five years - what a hoarder I am :)

I used one of Lizzie Anne Designs' newest sets, Vintage Valentine. I got out my gold Encore ink, which I have *never* used (gold isn't my thing - silver is) and decided to go nuts on this card. I added a small gold heart charm for fun. I don't have any jump rings so I used a small piece of black thread to tie it on. It worked, happily.

Have a wonderful day!

Well I'm sooo glad you decided to use gold because this card looks fabulous, love it! So elegant and regal looking. I also like the hints of maroon and black too!

This is very beautiful and elegant- I never use gold either! LOL. I "think" I have a gold ink pad....maybe??
