This was a bit of a struggle for me because I am simply not a "gold" person. I'm not a yellow person either so who knows what it is about my eyes/brain that just doesn't embrace those color families. The first decision was that I'd use just a splash of gold. I pulled out golden glitter enamel dots then decided they fit on snowflakes and the card came together quickly at that point!!
(OK, the true story. This was the second card. I fought the first card every step of the way and didn't like it even for a moment. It's not even that it had a ton of gold, but it had more than this one and I just could not wrap my brain around liking it even though I couldn't put my finger on something specific that was wrong. That's why they call these challenges!! But just as with facing any challenge, I learned something - I have to minimize the gold!)
Welcome back to Merry Monday! Thanks for the challenge and the inspiration!
