Happy Anniversary in Gold

I love gold on black, be it in cards or jewelry on clothing. Here was my chance to use this color scheme. Mod Squad's challenge was to "Go for the Gold" and create a card incorporating either gold, silver or bronze in our creations. I chose   gold.

I made my base card using white card stock and layered it with black. Using the rose image from GKD's Stately Flowers 6, I created my background on a white panel by stamping the rose flower randomly using Versamark ink and then embossing it with gold EP. This background panel was adhered to the black layer. All other images were also stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold.

The hearts were cut using dies from Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour. I stamped my sentiment (GKS/s Elegant Post) on the larger heart and added leaf branches (GKD's The Vine). For the smaller hearts, on one I stamped the leaf branch and then added love birds from PTI Love Birds stamp set. On the other I used a small rose image from a wood stamp that I had on hand. These were all attached to my background panel and the project was complete.

I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed this post. I'll be back soon with more.

Beautiful Olga. Love that you did the hearts in black, don't know why I don't think to do hearts in different colors other than red. It's stunning. Your gold embossed background is fabulous - well done my dear!!
