Golden-Perfect Pearls

Homework for Day 2 of the class I am taking at OCC Stretch your stamps...yep, you knew this was coming right ;)

Remember Perfect Pearls?  I think I must have every colour produced and have not used these in years.  Probably close to 10, but I sure am glad that I still have them because one of the beautiful card samples in class yesterday was made with PP.  I made several card fronts in different metal shades and colours and I have two to show you today from the stack.
I just wish that I could have captured the elegant glow better than I was able too.  I used a background stamp from Impression Obsession that has been totally neglected from birth.  It's the Cover a Card "Fizz".   Pretty straight forward technique, but I learned some extra tips in class, Yay!
The first card is a Thank You and I got a little crafty with my Memory Box Lavalier circle die.  Inlaid and die cut MB sentiment on top and added some glitter leaves for embellishment.  The hearts on the next card are die die cut with some PTI dies onto a foil card stock and then layered onto larger red hearts.  Same background technique and I inlaid the Elizabeth Craft Congratulations die.  I am linking this to the Card Concept Challenge #16 to create a wedding card.  I think that this might qualify for an elegant card?
This last card was created for the Case Study challenge... that has expired...but I wanted to show it anyway.  A very simple card made with the Memory Box 
PoppyStamps Blooming Poinsettia dies.  This card may be my Christmas card that I mass produce this year.  I love how easy and simple this card is.
Well, onto today's lessons before I get too far behind!
Thanks for stopping in.  I appreciate the visits :)
