Golden Hambo Hoedown

This week the wonderful challenge over at the Hoedown (see link on sidebar) is to use Tim's darling little hamster with the pot of gold along with LOTS of gold.  So, I took some metal and used the double metal embossing technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter and colored it gold.  The bottom layer of paper is also a metallic gold......even though the camera did a "I can't see you number" on that layer.  Sometimes things just don't seem to go right and today was one of those days.  I got the card all assembled and THEN noticed that the numbers part of the double embossing on the metal were upside down.  Sheesh!  I'm NOT tearing it apart now!  Then I topped it off with some told braid.  There are a lot of layers on this little guy.  See the picture below the card.
