Good afternoon everyone :)
It's been another couple of weeks since I last entered the LIM challenge
and as I was at home yesterday for the first Saturday in ages, I was determined to make a card.
The challenge this week is to use 'Gold' on your card.
I think I've only ever made a card with gold on it once before and that was for a Golden Wedding anniversary so I don't think it's my favourite colour!
I definitely found this a challenge.
I didn't like the first card I made so I did another....I'm not too keen on it either
but I'll take the plunge and share them both ~ warts and all!
For this one, I stamped the sentiment and then punched tiny flowers with SU boho blossoms punch from gold card. Next I arranged them in a heart shape on the card. (I used my largest nestabilities heart die as a template)
Then I added opal liquid pearls to the centres.
For this card I cut 2 flourishes from gold card using Tim Holtz elegant flourishes die.
I then embossed them with the swiss dots embossing folder and glued them to the base card.
I stamped text on two Prima flowers and added a gem brad through the centre.
Next I stamped a (Kaisercraft) sentiment with versamark ink and sprinked it with gold detail embossing powder. I layered it on gold card and adhered it to the card. To finish I added tiny dots of liquid pearls around the flourishes.

I'm looking forward to visiting all your blogs later.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
