StampInsanity #51: Find Your Pot o’ Gold!

It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge! This one is all about the gold! We challenge you to find that pot of gold at the bottom of the rainbow! Use some gold accents, or shades of golden in your color selection! Spring is coming!

I used Maddie from the Zeke and Maddie set. I love this set, because the focal images rock and the sentiments can be used for so many things! Check it out…

Fab right? How cool is Zeke? So I went waaaay over the top with my gold. Maddie’s hair has gold highlights, and her dress is golden, with lotsa glitter to boot! The background paper has gold foil, And I Glimmer Misted the heck out of my sentiment (which is from the Birthday Maddie set) in Patina and Gold.

I used dark teal as an accent color, which I thought looked striking. The warmth of the gold paired with the cool of the teal…ya feel me?

Ooh! Look at all the sparkle and sheen! Me likey shiny! If you click on this (or any other) pic, you can see it bigger. Time to show off your gold! But first, won’t you visit the rest of the Ward 2 Groovy Gurlz? Have an inspiring day!
