Celebrate in Gold, Silver and Bronze

A masterpiece in shine but very hard to photograph. I laid the card down for the first
photo and its probably the best shot.

I used the Winnie & Walter die cut for the main part of the card.
I cut it out once in gold, once in silver and multiple times in white card stock.

I left sone of the silver pieces in place and held them there from behind with small pieces of tape.
then laid the gold frame on top. I placed the acetate behind the silver layer.

I then built up the white layers behind the silver. After the fourth layer
I added bronze coloured glitter to the sections that had clear areas.
I then attached the white card base with glue so the glitter would
stay in its sections. After I had finished I found some of the glitter wasn't
enough in some sections but no way I was undoing to refill. 
Finished it off with the 'Celebrate' die cut from Papertrey Ink.
Its certainly a shimmer fest.

My next photo is what my desk looked like as I worked my way through
five cards, experimenting with the blending and snowflakes (cant imagine what I'll do
with that). Trying to decide what to do you know, stamp emboss, watercolour, blend, colouring, die cut,  fussy cut, make a card, a background.

My goodness theres even a flower set I bought from Winnie & Walter and I haven't inked it yet.
Need fix that, lucky the next 30 Day Colouring Challenge is coming start of November.
