Brushed Gold

Hello and happy Wednesday to you! I was playing with a little metallic paint this morning and created a one layer Christmas card. I wrote out all my Christmas cards last night and got them all addressed to mail out. That is a good feeling.
 My card started with a 110 lbs, top folding card base. This is usually Neenha Solar White or Papertrey Ink white card stock. I brushed some metallic acrylic paint down the top edge, let dry then dry embossed the two lines on my Martha Stewart board. Finally I stamped the the greeting from Stamplorations in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold detail powder. After I took the first picture I added a few white Nuvo drops. I was not sure I liked them but they are there now. lol. The clear might have been a better option.

This card will fit several challenges going on right now. They are all listed below.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
