5th day of Christmas: Five Gold Rings

Today I made a simple card for the Five Gold "Rings" challenge using some metallic papers I got from Paper Temptress, who is also one of the sponsor's for today's challenge! I was impressed with the quality and assortment of the papers I received, the gold and silver were much brighter and had more shimmer (two things I really want in a metallic paper!) than the brushed metallics I've gotten through SU! in the past. (I will be sharing more samples using some of the other paper colors and finishes I received from Paper Temptress over time) For the gold rings, I stuck on some of the Metallic Adhesive Rain dot Eyelets Gina K carries, and used the Stardust gel pen to make dotted lines down to each. Easy!! The metallic papers are cut with Nestabilities and then mounted on to 120 lb Gina K Pure Luxury CS. Sentiment is from Rupa's "The Magic of Christmas".

Please play along with your version of "circles or rings" and upload your creation to Papercraft Planet with the tag 12day5 (all lowercase,no spaces) before 12:01 AM EST on Wednesday 12/3 for a chance to win a prize!
