Faux Metal Joy.

Hi There,

Today my card was inspired by the Kimberly's card at Muse: Christmas Visions. I loved this card and made my own version:


I am sure you can see I was inspired by:

-the layout
-the colours
-the sentiment

I just swapped these elements around and instead of the black die I gave a little nod to the black by adding a few sequins and gems.

The 'Joy' element is made using the 'faux metal' technique I learnt from watching this video I found on the challenge this month on Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge. I actually didn't think I would have the patience to do this but...shock, horror I did!
I actually even dry embossed the faux metal before I die cut the 'Joy' to give it a more metal appearance.

Here is Kimberly's card:



I am going to enter this into:
