Going for Gold !!!!!!

Morning all, I've scheduled this post yesterday, so hopefully it's appeared Saturday Morning. I hope you are all well and happy.
My Son should be here sleeping in my craft room (his old bedroom) so I wont have a blog tomorrow. (might be able to sneak in and do something for Monday LOL!!)
This stitched and beaded card I have done in gold thread & beads. In the latest issue of Docrafts magazine there were some free papers, of Forever Friends at Christmas. Some are foiled papers, including this one that I have used. I had a peel-off of the forever friends bear which I stuck onto white card and then with watercolour pencils, coloured in. I've added a silver grey frame around the stitching (Tonic dies), as well as using as a layer behind the paper. Because the paper wasn't wide enough, I've used 2 sheets and joined - I then covered with the gold and grey ribbon to disguise.

I've used peel-off letters in silver to spell "merry Christmas".

 Hope you all enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing, and thanks for stopping by. x
