SIP 20 - color challenge

Hello and welcome to challenge #20 at Stamp, Ink, Paper!!  Wow, we are up to #20 already, I can't believe we have been at this for 20 weeks!!
This week's challenge is a color challenge.....

I must admit, I do not use a lot of gold on cards, I usually just don't care for it.. That said, I kinda like how it turned out on my card.....it did add a little sparkle!!

I got a call from a friend requesting some birthday cards, and this was the first one she chose, so this card is gone before I even am getting my post written.  lol  I like when that happens!! I need to remind myself, it is not necessary for me to always love the cards I make!!  :)
My base is Chocolate Chip (shhhhh.......I don't have Early Espresso, don't tell the boss), the next layer is Blushing Bride. On the white layer I stamped images from Gorgeous Grunge in Choc Chip and Gold, and stamped the tiny flower from Butterfly Basics in Blushing Bride. The gold butterfly is also from Butterfly Basics, heat embossed in gold. The larger butterfly is Blushing Bride, using the die from the Butterflies Thinlits. Behind the butterflies is a little twine.
Hope you enjoyed my card, and also that you take a moment to enter this challenge!!  I would like to see what you do with your gold......maybe it will inspire me to use it more!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Make it a great day!!
