Golden Eclipse

From the moment I saw the Just Add Ink challenge for the week, I knew I wanted to participate.  And, I knew numbers would be my eclipse image of choice.  But, I just couldn't figure out which numbers or what kind of card I wanted to make.

The decision to use foil paper is what helped me finalize my design.  I had some retired Year of Cheer paper that featured gold foil.  I immediately knew I should make a 50th anniversary card since it is the "Golden Anniversary".  Adding gold ribbon and a gold faceted gem helped add just the right amount of bling to this golden anniversary card.

Make sure you head on over to Just Add Eclipse Technique to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
