Gold ahhh, always believe in your soul!

Can you guess what the theme is over at the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog? It is "All That Glitters is Gold", as if we need an excuse to look out our glitter and sparklies :D 

I decided to go for a clean and simple card, with LOTS of gold glitter. I used the jar stamp from the Odds & Ends Stamp Set, it is so versatile, and I love how you can colour it, fill it with stickles, die cuts and I could go on and on. I stamped out 4 jars onto some white card, and cut one out and popped it on top of the middle one to give the card some dimension.  I decided to use gold Stickles to fill the jar, if I had used loose my cat would have looked like the Cat of a Different Colour ;)  

To make the sentiment I used the "Fan'Tashe'Tic" stamp from the March "A Few of My Favourite Things" Kit. I used some gold ink for the Tashe, and black ink for the sentiment to make it a wee bit different.

I added some more gold by using mirri card for my layers.
