VSN Winter Olympics - Part 3

I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing my VSN Challenge cards yet, I still have several to share with you.

cont'd: Saturday's VSN Challenges

"Going for the Gold, Silver, Bronze" Challenge
With all the talk about winning gold, silver and bronze, sometimes the Olympics just sounds like a metals commodity exchange. The challenge was to create something using a faux metal technique and incorporate it into a card. Because Olympic winners are presented their medals hanging on a ribbon, must use ribbon on your card.
My Card for "Going for the Gold, Silver, Bronze" Challenge

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Paper: Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Pretty in Pink
Access: Big Shot, Embosslit Flower Burst, Silver Brads, Black Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals

How to make my Faux Metal: Most faux metal techniques requires embossing powder, I do not have any of the metallic powders, so I used aluminum foil and my Big Shot with the Embosslits Flower Burst die.

"Go For The Gold" Challenge
Olympic athletes come to the games to compete for the top honor of winning the Gold Medal. This challenge was to GO FOR THE GOLD by using GOLD on your card!
