Back to August as an Adjective

After all the blog-hopping excitement of last week, we are back to "August as an Adjective".  Yes, that is right, we are using the term august as, "marked by majestic dignity or grandeur", with synonyms such as, "dignified, distinguished, imposing, portly, solemn, staid, and stately". How about trying along with us, and linking YOUR creations to the inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up Blog for a chance to win the wildest stencil design your little heart is screaming for.
Here's my creation for this week:
 
 
All the metal is aluminum with a medium blue coating.  The part that appears black in the picture is actually navy blue suede paper.  I used the Dreamweaver Stencils LX 2001 Damask and LL565 Script Thank You with the Rubber Embossing Mat in my Cuttlebug for super easy embossing.  The background was embossed, with the metal and the stencil face down.  The Thank You was debossed, with the metal and the stencil face up.  Both were sanded.  I attached the Thank You with both Double Sided Mounting Paper and small jeweled brads.  That's it.  Very simple, and, I think, rather august.  Now, check out the other posts for the week and then try your own.
