As You See It 150 - DT card

Welcome back to another challenge at As You See It. There were a lot of creative entries in our last three-of-a-kind sketch and we love to see what you make. We'd love to see what you do with this week's theme challenge:

Since an anniversary seems to me to be a time for opulence, the new Eastern Palace suite was my go-to place for this card. I've enjoyed having this suite to play with ahead of the general catalogue release and it's proved to be more versatile than I'd ever imagined. It's still available to you in pre-release bundles and will be available after June 1 when the new annual catalogue goes live. For more details, visit my on-line store. There's a link in the sidebar and you can shop with me if you're in New Zealand.

I've mixed vanilla and gold with one of the new in-colours, Fresh Fig, for this anniversary card.

Photographing the gold, especially the embossed sentiment (from Best Birds) was quite tricky. 

Please, join us in our anniversary challenge. You've got two weeks to play. Just link up by 11.55 p.m., Wednesday 21 May PST.

Card: Fresh Fig, Very Vanilla, Gold Foil
Stamps: Eastern Beauty, Best Birds
Ink: Versamark
Other: Gold embossing powder, Eastern Medallions, Gold Acetate stickers, mini-tassel selection.


  1. Absolutely stunning--love this, card! Elegant perfection!

  2. This is so elegant and love the deep plum colour you used, goes perfectly with the gold. I have the same problems with taking photos of embossed metallic area's. Photographing is way harder than I ever thought it would be!!
