JAI #333 Just add G

Hello there,
Well it's been an eventful week. So I'm going to keep this short and plunge straight into this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Tina has asked us to Just Add 'G'. Add 'G' you ask? Well that means we want you to add something, or several somethings, that begin with G as the main focus of your project. This could be colours - gold, or green for example, it could be an activity - golf, it could be a giant or gladioli or a technique or card fold as long as it starts with G!

The first thing that popped into my mind was gold. Since gold is perfect for blinging up Christmas cards I went gold, gold, gold and this is how it turned out.

The inside

See I wasn't joking about all the gold now was I! This is pretty simple in that it is just a mix of a bunch of different gold textures in a whole bunch of layers. All the shimmer is tricky to capture but I think you can get a feel for it.

Do stop past the rest of the DT for lots of fun and fabulous 'G' ideas.
