Golden Tones

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good weekend.  I was working on Saturday and have spent today finalising wedding invites for my daughter.  I can now make a start as we need them done by the end of February.

Today I want to share a card with you that I made quite a while ago but never got round to blogging.  I discovered a folder on my computer that has loads of cards in it that have not been blogged yet.  So expect to see more of these in the coming weeks.

I took some gold card and used Imagination Crafts sparkle medium in gold through one of their border stencils - Leaf Swirl border.  When it was dry I cut an aperture out of the centre and mounted onto some lighter gold card.  For the flowers I used the Daisy decoupage stamp from Imagination Crafts and stamped several times onto vellum using versamark and white embossing powder.  I cut the flowers out and mounted them around the aperture.  The sentiment stamp is also from Imagination Crafts.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Will definitely be doing this one again but using different colours and sentiment stamps.  

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Imagination Crafts - Anything goes
Lisa B - Anything goes
Penny Black and More - Stencils, masks, embossing folders
Creative Moments - Anything goes
Inky Impressions - Monochrome
4 Crafty Chicks - Flowers
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Sister Act - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
