Card Maker Blog Hop - Metallic Inspiration

Happy Wednesday and welcome to another Card Maker Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Colleen's fabulous blog

The theme is metallics.  I pulled out some metallic mist, cord, embossing powder and card stock and came up with this!  Kept it pretty simple, hope you like it.

Even the lime paper has a shimmer to it and the little gem is sparkly too.  I apologize for the photo... I'm without Photoshop (and watermarks, etc.) as my precious MacBook Pro died on Sunday.  :(  Hoping it can be repaired and thank goodness for backups. If you notice I'm not commenting on blogs much, that's why. It's also the reason for my short blog posts... working on a borrowed machine.

The next stop on the hop is the fantastic Jennie!  Can't wait to see what she came up with!  Hope you enjoy everyone's creations!  Here's the full list:
