The above photo lets you get a good look at how shiny the card is. :)
I made a gold background using some ink and water. It's actually quite easy, and gives a lovely effect when it's all dried. The sun rays and sentiment are embossed, and the gold sparkly strips are decorative tape.
Have a loverly evening my dear followers! It snowed here today, so I am quite happy. Maybe I can go skiing soon!
