Leaving in gold

 So a colleague at work is leaving on Friday and I have tried to make a stylish but masculine card for him, with a hint of celebration rather than being too depressive. It is also the day our new challenge starts at Creative Moments.

I layered a black card over the base card and added golden domes. I then matted together black on gold mirror card and wrapped with gold glitter ribbon, adding a solid gold bow to finish. I die cut the inside of the balloon from gold card and then die-cut both parts in black card, to make the balloon shaker element. Unfortunately I was out of the letter E so I used a gold gel pen to make C's into E's on the sentiment in the balloon and added gold glitter. I then wrote the sentiment on the bottom panel (badly I know).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
craftycalendar - Anything Goes
AYLI - Dies or stencils - I find dies are much quicker to work with and so am more likely to use them
audsentiments #288 Anything Goes
inkspirational #252 Photo inkspiration

Thanks for looking,
