Gold Faux Peter Pan Collared Shirt

I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been as true to gold as I am now.  When I was a kid gold was so not cool and I was into all things silver.  I still opt for silver jewelry mostly, but now I can appreciate a little pop o' gold here and there.

When I saw this idea from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar a while back, I loved it and I've finally gotten around to making one for Lila.
I want to clarify again that I did not come up with this idea.  I like to label my pictures, but my ideas are often inspired by other people's ideas.  I recognize that I am not the creative genius, but labeling the pictures helps me feel organized, so please don't think I'm trying to take credit.  Just sayin'.

So onward and upward.  I bought this shirt for $1 on clearance at walmart a while back.
and some Sparkly Tulip stuff {a touch spendy, yes, but it's got a whole sheet and I'm going to try to get as much use out of it as I can because, ya know, I'm a tight wad.}
And then I let the gold and the super cheap shirt become one.
Again the original tutorial is here.  It's simple and fairly self explanatory.  Here's what it looks like without buttons.
I added some gold buttons for a little gold on gold.  Too much?
Maybe.  Oh stinking well.  Because it was an easy, fun way to put some life into a plain shirt.

Hope your day is golden. :)
