To inspire you this month, I have made a card using Craftangles glimmer pastes in white and gold!
These are so much fun to use and they add so much sparkle and shine to any project!

To create the card background, I used the Craftangles abstract circles stencil and the Craftangles 'fairy dust' glimmer paste and set it aside to dry.
While it was drying, I stamped and fussy cut the layered carnation from Waffle Flower crafts.
I then die cut the word 'Happy' ( a Winnie and Walter die) out of white card stock and used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour the same to match the colours of the flower. I also cut out the word from white fun foam to back it and create some dimension.
I had a scrap piece of gold glitter card stock,
(I made this by applying gold glimmer paste to a piece of white card stock and allowing it to dry) left over from another project. I cut out the numbers 65 from the scraps as well as from some fun foam to use as a backing to create some dimension, like above.
I the adhered all the elements to the background panel and 
adhered the same to a red coloured card base. 
That gold 65 really makes the card pop I think!

See how the glimmer paste glitters?!

My second project is a bunch of fun gift tags in primary colours and a touch of gold!
I used stamps from the Hero Arts 'Christmas lights' stamp set for these tags. I heat embossed the strings of lights with gold embossing powder on white card stock, which, had been die cut into tags using MFT's tag die.
I then used Tim Holtz's Fired Brick, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed distress inks to to smoosh some colour onto the tags.
I love how fun and celeberatory they are!
I finished the tags with some May Arts jute ribbon and a golden bell!

I hope you have been inspired to play along with my Touch Of Gold challenge!
I can't wait to see what you create!
