A bit of Glitz

I'm joining in at Glitz Designs for the February Color Trends challenge; such beautiful colours.  I'm not sure I did them justice, but this is what I came up with:

What I did:  
* For the pale pink and neutral - I cut into a sheet of Glitz Designs paper. I'd been saving it for just the right layout (yeah, right - I just like hoarding pretty papers...) but I never envisioned using for a Chinese New Year layout!
* For the gold - I altered the alphabet stickers with heat embossing powder to cover up the original hot pink colour.  It was a bit fiddly because I had to remove the stickers from the backing sheet, then stamp with VersaMagic, then transfer to a clean sheet for the powder, etc - by the time I finished there was no 'stickiness' left and I had to adhere the letters with glue.

I also heat embossed the chipboard in the same gold.

* For the silver - I added edge-stitching with silver thread.
