Wplus9 Stretch It

Hi peeps. Today I am back with a post for i {heart} paper and for Wplus9 birthday celebration stretch it challenge. To stretch our creative muscle, step out of our comfort zone.
 
Well, my comfort zone is definitely clan and simple. Now and then I do like to step out of my usual style and do more elaborate or more layered stuff.  Actually one of the style that I love is the freestyle, like the one that my dear friend Emily Branch is so good at. She could throw in a bunch of stuff in 1 card and they look cool.
 
So, here's my attempt at free styling.
 
 

For this card, I did the faux press lettering with the stripe embossing folder, then add a dash of gold by adding the gold vellum border and gold spray mist. The leafy branch is from Wplus9 Silver Bells set and the sentiment is from Fresh Cut Florals. For some extra details I added a loopy string of silver thread behind the branch. I kind of wish I had use a gold color one instead, as the silver didn't really show up well in the pic (and I don't have gold color thread. Note to self: shop for one!)

What would you consider as your comfort zone? Ohh... oh.... any of you out there Grey's Anatomy fans?? Are you as excited as I am that they finally return tonight??? So, who are you rooting for, Matthew or Jackson for April? I go with Jackson, since they do have good chemistry together. I can't wait!! Cheers for Thursday. :)

LOVE your card! :) So pretty! I'm all about CAS. Sometimes I do try and play around with other styles. Though, that's a total hit or miss for me. ;) And I wish I could chime in on your Grey's Anatomy show, but I don't watch it. I never even seen an episode!...Is that bad? ;)
