TTTC86 Elegant Gold and Merlot

Hello again, peeps!  Time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge, with Team X at the helm!  Here's our lovely grid for your stamping pleasure: 


I chose the left column of Gold Foil/Glitter, Burgundy and Die Cut for my thank you card today: 

Merry Merlot is such a pretty fall color, and I used it and a foam brayer to cover one of the gold-embossed patterns from Gilded Autumn DSP, just brayering over the pattern until I got the coverage I wanted.  I stamped a few of the greenery images from Forever Fern in Merry Merlot and Delicata Gold ink (which is sadly retired), diecut them out and placed them against a Brushed Metallic Gold panel.  I added a sentiment from Beautiful Autumn and a few sequins from my stash, then adhered everything to a Merry Merlot card:

That gold ink is very sparkly....too bad you can't see it here!  I added a little extra foliage on my inside layer too, because stamping those little leaves is just too fun!

And the sketch I used is from Fab Friday:

Be sure to check out what the DT created with this tic-tac-toe challenge, and then share your creation with us as well at the Tic Tac Toe blog!  See you there!

Beautiful card LeAnne!! I always forget about Merry Merlot unless I'm matching DSP. I love that you colored in the background on this sheet and all the gold is lovely! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Beautiful, LeAnne! You had me at Merlot, lol. I've been so sad that this color didn't get used more in our holiday papers, so genius to make your own - I see that in my immediate future, lol. Love your wonderful Fall composition! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
