White with One

The colour to match this month's challenge over at White with One is Gold. While I love adding touches of gold to my layouts, I had never based an entire layout around it. I loved this challenge and this would have to be one of my favourite layouts I have ever created.
And some close ups: 

I used my VersaMark ink pad to run along the outer edges of the cardstock before adding gold embossing powder. I also sprinkled embossing powder at various parts over the layout before heat setting it. One of my favourite new additions to my stash are rolls of metallic thread which I just had to use on this layout.
I loved pulling bits and pieces of my stash together for this, even some gold foil wrappers from our Easter Egg stash which I used behind the layout and to cover the 3.
Definitely a simple layout but one that I will treasure for a long time to come.
Thanks for stopping by.
