Midnight madness challenge #19

I made this card for the weekly challenge over at Midnight madness.
Priscilla has a great challenge every week and goodies to give away also. I made this background which doesn't look metallic in the scan but it's really shimmery in real life. Just take dark colors or in this case bright orange cardstock and a sponge brush and paint metallic acrylic paints over it lightly. It was fun, very easy and very quick to make, then I ran it thru the cuttlebug and it's all done. Make sure to put down a garbage bag or something under the paper, it's kind of messy!!! LOL Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.
