Designing with Red, Green, Gold

 
 
I have been playing with some DCWV solid Foil Cardstock.  I love how elegant foil is but it is the hardest thing to photograph.  I hope you can sense how this card looks in real life. Did a closer look to show foil layers better.
The Poinsettia Stamp is from GKD A Year of Flowers set and is one of my most used stamp set.  I stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copics and added sparkle with Sakura Stardust pen and Stickles Gold Glitter glue.  I matted the single image on Squares of Red and Green Foil and the a Gold Foil before attaching to the card base.  I found the red, green, gold ribbon in my stash which was never opened.

Gorgeous card! I must agree with the difficulty in photographing the lovely foils... it has been my problem as well. I am certain this is stunning in person. Thanks for adding information about the age of your stamp. Hope you play with Retro Rubber often!
