OLW23 - Heavy Metal

Susan Raihala's challenge for this week's One Layer Wednesday is to use something metallic on a one-layer card.  It is hard to tell at first glance but I used metallic paper.
Can you see the shimmer better now?  This is Platinum A Muse Shimmer Couture paper.  I have the hardest time getting pictures of it but it is the most delicious shimmery paper - EVER!!  LOVE this stuff!  The A Muse Leaf Frond and sentiment are embossed in black and then enhanced with a black satin ribbon.  That means there isn't a thing matte on this entire card.  There is shimmer/shine all over this baby (which is great on a card but bad on one's face - that's why I carry blotting papers - I hate a shiny face)!
