Here is Card Patterns Sketch #145:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Weight Ivory and layered with panels cut from metal sheets in Poison Ivy, Gold Nugget and Scarlet Red that Monica generously provided to the DT for our samples. I punched the border of the gold layer with a SU Scallop Border Punch. I embossed the red layer with a Sizzix Large Damask embossing folder. I cut a frame for the image panel from the Gold Nugget metal sheet using a Spellbinders Lacey Circle die. My image is a precolored digi from Paulette at Create With TLC. I printed it on layering weight ivory and cut it out and popped it up. A few red gems, some lace trim and a metallic red ribbon bow finished my card. It sure was hard to get a decent photo with all the shiny metal!
