On The Fifth Day of Christmas.

Day 5 of the Frosted Designs 12 days of Christmas Challenge.

On the Fifth Day of Christmas my True Love said please use 5 gold items.
I had a good rummage in my stash and found a total of ten  goodies that I could possibly use.
After playing aroundf for a while I selected the following:
Gold Star design paper
Gold cord
Wow Metalic Gold Embossing powder
Gold charmn
Gold Metal Christmas tree self adhesive

I also used the gold base card for the card itself. I like to take basic die cut shapes and make patterns with them (as with the card on my  previous post). I thought this card had a sort of Eastern style to it.

The sentiment and swirls were created using clear stamps and then embossed with the Wow powder.

Entering into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: Use five gold items.
Simon says Stamps: Merry Christmas.Anything  Christmassy.
Pile it On: Pile on the embellishments.
Pixie's Crafty workshop. Use up your snippets #52  (Design paper was a left over snippet)
