Golden Snowflake

Wow! I have just surpassed 50 posts! What a fun mile marker. Thank you all for all your wonderful and encouraging comments, I Love them! What will the next 50 posts bring? We will have to see! So this is one of the cards we will be doing for my 10 for $10 class coming up next month. I saw this card on the Internet and I just fell in love with it. When I went to make this card, I did not have gold brads to match the brushed gold card stock so I decided to emboss them with gold embossing powder. It worked great till I went and touched them! The gold came right off, I didn't do any prep to the brad so next time I try it I will make sure I sand the surface. I also have gold brads on my next order so I won't have to make any more of them once they get here. Anyway, enough of my rambling!
