A metallic note!

Good morning! I finished up a little quick card this morning that really took me to a new level. COLORING! I think this is usually my downfall but I'm really happy with how this card turned out! I think I did a pretty good job! I made it for a few challenges. The first is the Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge #50 w/ a twist, the twist being you had to use metallic accents somewhere on the project. The next 2 challenges, Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays Tagalicious, and Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #11 Tag you're it! both required the use of a tag.

Here is a picture of the sketch I had to follow:
and my card :)

This is a bigger card, 6.5x5 inches. The sunflower stamp is from Rubber Stampede (Sunflower Designs 770F). I've had this stamp for decades, literally. My mom bought it for me during my teenage sunflower craze where literally everything I owned, and lived in and around had to be sunflowers. I can't believe I saved it. Being a pack rat pays off I guess! I colored it in using my Prismacolor pencils. All of the scallop cuts are from Gypsy Wanderings. The sentiment is from Stampendous Personal Notes Mini Quad Cube and I pop dotted the scallop that you can kind of see in the second picture. I used the ek success Victorian Photo Corner punch and used glossy accents and glitter on them. I absolutely love this corner punch! Thanks for looking!
