My project:

White and Gold part two:  I made yesterday's card before the holiday weekend and these two after I returned from out of town.  I managed to go more white and add a few new items from my Black Friday haul.

 I sprayed my poinsettias with Smooch shimmer spray in gold then edged with Brilliance galaxy gold.  I added a Teresa Collins sequins I purchased over the weekend and put beads from my stash in the center.  

There are a few black spots (unfoiled) on these images but they weren't too bad.
