Card Crafter's Circle/Challenge #14 POT OF GOLD

Hi, and welcome!'s FRIDAY!
Just a gentle reminder, in case you hadn't noticed what day it is....I do that all the time, heehee.
Time for a challenge at 

and today we have a brand new sponsor 

Our randomly drawn winner gets to choose 3 digis...and there are tons to choose from......
but that's not all....oh no......this very generous sponsor will also give each of our TOP THREE a digi of their good does it get?!

So how do you get your pretty little mitts on some of these goodies?
You need to make something....and remember that it doesn't have to be a card....we are a mixed media kind of challenge blog......just something that has GOLD on it........

Here's mine.....

Needed to do a bit of de-stressing, so did some distressing .....haaaaa!
I printed the image twice, once onto normal card, and then onto some gold foiled card....wasn't sure if the gold would print out properly, but it was fine....pheeew!  A bit of paper piecing, and she was all decked out in her finery :D........

I think I've got some boots like that.....heeheeeee....and how about the handbag.....posh, or what?  And every girl needs a gold umbrella.......well, it would be rude not to, wouldn't it?  The rest of her is coloured up with my trusty Promarkers...of course, lol........

The pretty that colour! from East of India (the company, not the location..ha!), and this is it's first outing........

I tore strips of gold and red paper, pricked holes around the edges, and topped with a tiny journal card, and a ticket..... the teeny tiny kraft tag was actually part of the ribbon packaging....couldn't chuck that in the rubbish!.....and added a teeny gold flower thingy with a red brad pushed through.......
I just know that you'll love all the sweet digis over at MILK COFFEE and that they are going to be a firm favourite with this little (HA!) crafter!
Our design team are a very talented lot, and you are missing out if you don't check out their takes on this fabby challenge.....go to their links in my left side-bar!
