Red and Gold

It's time for a new challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this week it's a colour challenge

You are allowed to use BLACK and WHITE (or off-white) in addition to the red and gold. No green! :) Please have fun with this one!

For my metallic gold I chose to go with gold embossing powder and went very minimalist making my sentiment the main focal point - take a look

I found some gorgeous ribbon my my stash drawer which was a perfect match for the Cherry Cobbler card stock I'd used so I used it to wrap around my card and add a large bow.

Stamps: Delightful Dozen, Summer Silhouettes
Ink: Versamark
