DCM challenges

I've covered two challenges here, I haven't spent much time blogging but have been playing with paper and have quite a lot to upload....
DCM - Golden Highlights

Going back over my cards I seem to have a liking for gold as an accent colour. So this week I'd like you to make a card for any season or occasion but must include gold somewhere. It could be a brad, metallic card, heat embossing, ribbon, anything at all as long as it's gold.

Santa's Little Extra Helper no 5: Baubles, Bells & Bows

The cards that are being shown for Keryn's Golden Highlights dare are beautiful and show just how the smallest touch of gold can lift a design and make it extra-special. There's still plenty of time to join in with that one as we're only halfway through a DCM week! However, if you're ready for another little challenge, or still need some help getting those Christmas cards made then Santa's Little Extra Helper is here again with a new theme for you to work on
This week we'd love to see you making cards on the theme of
Baubles, Bells & Bows
See how much of a dent you can make in the "I need to make X number of Christmas cards" list with this one.

I saw this idea in a magazine and just had to try my interpretation.
stars were die cut and glued o gold mirri and I cut them into circles raised on 3d foam. The sentiment and string & bows were drawn on free hand.
Paper from DCWV and embellished with gold peel off sticker.
Thanks for looking, come back soon!

Like th raised star idea - it gives the baubles great dimension. How is it going with your nesabilities - I've been deliberating over a set for ages.
