The current challenge at Dynamic Duos really called out to me, because it includes a colour I've been neglecting for a long time - Rich Razzleberry.

Here's the challenge:

I've let the large sentiment from Another Great Year take centre stage on my card.  It's gold-embossed, and the banners are coloured with a Rich Razzleberry marker.  I wanted to add some teensy flowers, but wanted them to be subtle, so used Creped Filter paper, and inserted a brad into each flower centre.
The light was not great for taking this photo - I got home from work when the natural light was fading, and, joy of joys, one of the fluorescent overhead lights in my craft room had decided to stop working!

Here's a better shot that shows the lovely sheen of the gold embossing:

Stamps: Another Great Year, Banner Blast
Card: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP: Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper
Ink: Versamark inkpad, Basic Black craft stampin' pad, Whisper White craft stampin pad, Rich Razzleberry marker
Other: Gold stampin' emboss powder, Clear stampin' emboss powder, Essentials Paper-piercing pack, Paper-Piercing tool, Banner punch, Owl Builder punch (tiny heart on banner), Itty Bitty shapes punch, Neutrals and Brights brads, Tasteful Trim Bigz die, Creped Filter Paper, Sticky strip, sponge dauber


  1. Super fun, Christine. Love the polka dots and all that gold embossing. Fantastic. TFS with the Dynamic Duos this week:)

  2. Gorgeous Christine, the embossing looks fab.

  3. Wow, what a great take on the color challenge! The gold is really bright and pretty, and the paper piercing around the edge really adds a great finish to the card. Lovely as usual, Christine!

  4. Love the gold embossing and the scalloped edge on the dsp!
