Metallic Sympathy

I find it really hard to get good pictures of metallic cards.  This one isn't too bad, but the sentiment is a bit blurry - sorry.  

Anyway, this card is pretty straight forward.  The sentiment and border around it were stamped onto a dark blue glimmer paper with a Stamp and Punch set of stamps from HOTP before being embossed with gold embossing powder.  This is cut close to the border and then matted on a white die-cut piece (Spellbinder's die).  The border behind it is actually a piece of grosgrain ribbon, though it's hard to tell in the picture. This is put on the metallic patterned paper (HOTP) before being matted on more blue glimmer paper.
