Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 122 Take Two

When I was making this card for this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, I had to add color to the ornaments to co-ordinate with the paper, but I found myself thinking about how elegant they looked in just gold and white.  This inspired me to make a gold and Colonial White version of the sketch.   

I sponged a little Metallic Gold ink along the edges of each ornament to help separate them from the background and used thin foam tape to attach the background panel to the card base to give the card some dimension while still making it easy to mail.  I don't know if you are allowed to enter more than one card, but I like this one too much not to enter it!  

Thank you for stopping by!  Now why don't you check out how others have interpreted this Atlantic Hearts Sketch?  Until next time, Hansi

Materials used, All Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Colonial White cardstock, Metallic Gold paper of unknown brand that I ordered through Amazon 
Stamps: Holiday Cheer,  Mosaic Madness by Stampin Up
Ink:  Versamark, Metallic Gold by Color Box
Embellishments:  Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder
