All That Glitters Is Not Gold

The challenge at the Kraft Journal this week is glitter.  Glitter is a product I never use but that doesn't mean my cards don't sparkle.  There are other ways to achieve the look of glitter and I think I captured that with this card.

The card base is SU Early Espresso.   The sentiment (Ginger's House) and the pre-colored pumpkins (Doodle Pantry) were printed on the Kraft Outlet Buff Ivory cardstock panel.
The beautiful copper (not gold!)glitter embossed ribbon is a piece of wire ribbon from my recycle stash.  And the Butter Bias Tape, green  Hemp cord, and the brown Earthy Hemp Cord are from the Kraft Outlet.
Can you see the little bit of Stickles I added to the leaves and blossoms? The final little touch was to pierce a scroll in two corners to match the scroll in the copper ribbon.
The Kraft Journal would love to have you come play along in the challenge, All That Glitters.
