I love the faux textured metallic paper technique by Jennifer McGuire. Here's my card
I started by masking the edges of the A2 card panel with post-it tape. I added distress inks (evergreen bough, cracked pistachio, shaded lilac) with an oval make-up brush. I then brushed on perfect pearls with a dry brush. I carefully removed the post-it tape and used a We R Memory Keepers Next Level 3D Embossing folder - Geometric to emboss the panel. For the sentiment, I used some shiny silver cardstock and Simon Says STAMP's Script Thanks die.
Here's a close-up
Thanks for stopping by (and I'm not too late for bed, either)
