Go for the Gold!!

Hi everyone!!  Today on Stamp TV Brenda is hosting our challenge!!  In honor of the Olympics starting in just a few days her challenge is "Go for the Gold".  I absolutely LOVE the Olympics so I had to play along!!  An idea came to me to use the circles in Becky's new set I Do to represent the Olympic rings.  And because I am hoping the U.S.A. will win lots of gold medals I had to emboss with gold embossing powder!!  The gold layer was made by using gold embossing powder around the edges of black cardstock.  This weeks CAS-ual Friday's challenge is Back in Black, to use black as a card base so I took it literally!  I love white on white cards so why not?!  I am really liking how this card turned out!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
