In the Gold w/ FabFri43

Good morning and thanks for visiting me here at Ink a Doodle Creations!  Today I want to share with you the card I created for the fun sketch over at Fab Friday.  This little card is for a friend of mine.  Some of us gals participated in a 30 day squat challenge and for a little extra incentive for them to keep going, I offered up to those who checked in every day a chance to win a $20 gift card to either Dick's Sportings Good or Barnes and Noble book store.  Well I had three ladies, besides myself that checked in every day and held in there to the bitter end, with the last day being #250 squats!!  The winner of the gift card went to Diana Eichfeld and she chose the Dick's gift card.  I created this card in gold, cause she earned the "gold" prize!!!  Great job Diana!!!  Its in the mail today my friend!

For my card, I embossed a layer of gold foil paper with the arrow folder. Stamped three of the word phrases from the new Bravo Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped in versa mark and heat embossed the "to" banner from the "way to go" stamp and used a foam dot to raise it up.  I also used my triangle punch to spread them across the bottom to follow the sketch layout.  The watercolor wonder washi tape was used on the sided as well as for two of the triangles.

On the inside, I punched out a few more triangles and scattered them off to the side.

The gold bakers twine and gold sequin trim adds a nice finishing detail.
