Atlantic Hearts Challenge #221

There is a super fun sketch for the current challenge at Atlantic Hearts. It is so versatile.

Here's my card

I started with a faux metal look achieved by adding distress inks (spiced marmalade and fossilized amber), quickly followed by some Perfect Pearls (for the shimmer). I then placed the panel through my Big Shot with the WeRMemoryKeepers Geometric embossing powder. I trimmed the panel to size. I picked the Authentique Collection Strong 6x6 paper pack to choose some printed papers to make the small banners. I added a grey strip, stamped with the sentiment from Hero Arts CL943 Color Layering Bouquet.
