shine on (PDC, Retro, SCS)

Just under the wire.  Again.  But I made it so enough said.  Saw this inspiration board last week over at The Play Date Cafe.

Thought, "mint - ugh".  But I love how it's combined with leather and gold. Hmmm.  Then I get this catalog in the mail with some little gold scrolls - "open all to see which prize you have won" blah, blah, blah .  Then I see the sketch over at Retro Sketches

and also know that I have a "shiny" card still to make for HYCCT #1215B.  Ta da.

So, except for the fact that I nearly missed the cutoff, and that my photo had to be taken in my basement, I'm happy.  Love the touch of glamour the gold candles and bling (like the doorknob) add.  And that brown/beige PP is actually flocked and damask.  It's a stretch to Retro, but I did get the idea there.  Don't know whether this should be a congrats or bday card so no sentiment yet.  What do you think?

Thanks for visiting.

Supplies :
Paper: cardbase Papermania, PP Basic Grey and Laura Ashley
Ink :
Tools: die Sizzix
Other: bling, ribbon
