March SOG Monthly Challenge

Happy Saturday!

I just can't believe that it is March 1st and we are buried in snow!  The first of the month brings a new challenge over at Some Odd Girl.  This challenge is very on trend right now-- GOLD!  I am loving this new trend to incorporate the color gold in my projects.

I decided to make a layout using  the Gold them.  I really went wild n crazy with my Some Odd Girl stamps and Odds n Ends from the store.  I had a blast with this challenge.  I started with a green pattern piece of paper from Bella Blvd.  I then trimmed my Core cardstock and then splattered it with Heidi Swapp Gold mist.  This mist was so fun.  I then layered a few drops of the green and blue.  Next  I took a Heidi Swapp piece of cardstock where you mist it and then the design comes through. ( I have forgotten the name of the paper, but it had been in my stash for a long time and I broke it out.)  I misted it with the gold shimmer and I LOVED how it turned out.  I then layered it with some more Bella pattern paper.  I then added my Gold Doily from the Some Odd Girl store-- Don't you just love it???  I then got busy with my stamping.  I used several different sets- Hipster Kody (Coming out this week!!!!!!), Photo Kaylee,  and Be You, . I heat embossed my "picture perfect" in white and then got out my gold embossing powder to stamp "just be you" and cut it out leaving a white rim around it.  I was so proud of myself  becuase I was able to use some of my gold embossing powder that I bough about 5 years ago and NEVER used!  Sticking to my commitment to using my stash!!!!   I then placed it all on the layout and added some yummy Sequins from the shop.  Finally I added a Heidi Swapp word sticker and an October Afternoon flair button.
