The Pixie Cottage Challenge #93 - Go For Gold

It's Wednesday so that means another super challenge at The Pixie Cottage
This week we have a sketch and the theme is "Go For Gold!"
Remember you can use the sketch or the theme or both!

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Thrilling Thursday - Anything Goes
CCEE Stampers - Fall
CRAFT - Autumn
Oldie But A Goodie - Autumn (and stamp over 6 months old)
Kaboodle Doodles - Fall
Heartsong - Harvest
Meljens - Red and Gold
Shopping Our Stash - Fall Colors (12 combined challenges max)
Crafty Creations - Fall Colors and Leaves
Whimsy Inspires - Button It

Card Recipe:
Image - Pumpkin Fairy Hannah by Sandra Hammer
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Autumn Splendor by DCWV
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Die Cut - Labels 22 by Spellbinders

This was the super sketch for this week.

I decided to go with both the theme and the sketch this week and I'm really pleased with the results. The gold in the patterned paper really works with orange of the Pumpkins and then the metallic sentiment just ties it all in.
I hope you like it too and will come over and play with us in The Pixie Cottage this week!
