Heart 2 Heart - Silver and Gold

Welcome back to a new year from Heart 2 Heart Challenges! 

Our first challenge of the new year is Silver and Gold. 

(Although Christmas is past, my first thought when I heard that phrase together is the Snowman from the original animated special, Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It is a part spoken by Burl Ives and at one point in the story, he sings a song titled, "Silver and Gold". It's one of my all time favourite specials and I can sing the words to every song and have been able to do so since I was about 5 years old...) 

However, for this challenge, we are asking our participants to use the colours of silver and gold - in whatever combination they wish! 

I chose to create a card using the Basic Fundamentals Gold Overlays. The card itself wasn't difficult to create but photographing it was a really challenge! Shadows make the overlays very hard to photograph... and editing is very inconsistent unless you are familiar with programs like Photoshop (I am not). SO, this is the best picture of several to represent what I did for this challenge:

It's hard to tell but the black cardstock behind the flower was painted using a Gold Shimmer Pen. This time, the Clear Shimmer Pen showed up on the flower!
