Gold

Morning all.
My friend Di says I've been quiet in blogland but I have been busy in my craftroom. 
I made a card based on a card I saw on someone's Pinterest board but I cannot find it again as I am not on Pinterest, I just followed a link to a pin of one of my cards and did a bit of browsing. I think it was by a lady called Birgit, so apologies again to her for not being able to locate the exact post and link, just her fantastic blog.
I was aiming to cover a couple of challenges with this card, 



and 

 one layer -foliage



The lay out is the same as the card I saw, but this is just on one layer.
I die cut my MB Fresh Foliage die then used the leftover as a mask to ink the card with Versamark and then heat embossed with gold. I then added a few dots using an embossing pen and used silver pearl powder to emboss. The circles of golden colours were made using a circle stencil cut out of scrap then inked with DIs. The sentiment was stamped in brown.

OK, that's it for today. See you again soon.
