Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge - A Touch of Gold

Good morning everyone! Today I am participating in the June Blog Hop 
Challenge at Papertrey Ink. The challenge for this month's hop is to add a touch of gold to a paper crafted project. I used Freshly Made Sketch #91, however I missed their deadline.

I tend not to use a lot of glitter or shine on my cards, but I needed an Anniversary card so thought that would be the perfect opportunity to use 'a touch of gold'.



I heat embossed the frame image from Boutique Borders: Birthday in gold as well as the stamens on the flowers. I did not have any shiny gold cardstock, so I created my own by swiping the edge of a piece of white cardstock with my Versamark ink pad and embossing with the gold embossing powder. I had a few gold sequins that I was originally going to use on this card as well, but they didn't really match the embossed gold so I left them off. I actually like the card just fine without them.

Supplies: Standard A2 size
Stamps - Rosie Posie, Rosie Posie Step 2, Boutique Borders: Birthday (PTI), Happily Ever After (Flourishes)
Ink - Gypsy, Pansy Purple, Garden Green, New England Ivy, Gold EP (CTMH), Versa Mark
Paper - Neena Solar White CS, purlple CS (unknown)
Other - Rosie Posie Die Collection (PTI), 3D Foam
