Metallic paper challenge

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I spent the morning running errands and the rest of the day cleaning and trying to get my Christmas decorations up. It was a good day to be inside because it was snowing. In the last 24 hours we received 12 inches of snow with a possibility of 2 more inches by morning.

I found some time to stamp today and worked on last week's "Ways to Use it challenge" on Splitcoast which was to use metallic papers. I have the Die Cuts With a View Luxury stack of pearlized papers that I thought would be perfect for this challenge. For my stamped image I went with the wonderful bird in the Majestic Flight set from Inque Boutique. I stamped him in versamark and embossed him with copper on the same paper I used for the background.

The base is ivory shimmer with a layer of DCWV paper on it. I found the wonderful wire looking ribbon in my craft room when cleaning yesterday and added that under the strip of amber cool metallics paper from The Paper Company. The ribbon is auburn from Offray. Thanks for stopping!
