Metallic Plus One

Morning LIMettes... I'm not sure where this week went but we have another fabulous challenge at Less Is More and this week it's colour challenge and we want to see...
Metallic Element plus One Other Colour 
There are so many ways to add the metallic touch...embossing powder, charms, mirri card, embellishments of all sorts...the list is endless! I took the challenge literally and went for metallic and a colour... you know I love my coloured card blanks!

For the first card I have used the new heart from Stampin UP and embossed in Ranger Distressed Gold embossing powder.  The banner die is from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment Clearly Besotted.  
I love how with polymer stamps you can mould the stamp into shape to give a slight curved effect to mimic the shape of the die!

I've used embossing powder again for my second card but this time it's pewter from Stampin Up.  The butterfly is from best of butterflies and the sentiment from one of this years sale-a-bration sets.
It's finished off with a gunmetal coloured gem.

I'll be back tomorrow... I have a full day of crafting ahead and Lizy is around later on!!
