A "Golden Hello"

{The recipe follows after photograph}
I cut two die cut layers from white card stock. I used VersaMark to stamp the small flower from "Grand Sentiments" all over the main panel, sprinkled with Gold embossing powder and then heat until shiny.

I colored in all the flowers with some Copic markers from the tan group. Cut the oval out of tan card, popped up with two layers of adhesive foam dots, added four small pearls. Cut the white oval, sponged inside then stamped with Hello and curly horse shoe kind of design, both from "Lace Medallion Labels" and added the six tax rhinestones. Used double layer adhesive pop dots under the white oval.

I took some gold shiny tulle, laced it through the sides of the deco label, and tied a bow. I spread the bow into a circle shape.

Cut three round layers out of white card, sprayed it with water and scrunched up tightly and let dry. Opened, sponged with tan colors, painted edges with gold. Added large gold brad to center and made into flower. Glued onto tulle flower.

Used three premade paper flowers, and after coloring and painting with gold, placing them to upper right of focal image. Painted gold into centers of all background flowers.

Final step: Cut scallop, and applied two layers of gold embossing powder, heat set. Placed just under gold tulle to meet the Flourish Challenge this week :)

  7. This is the most strikingly gorgeous card, Rosy. I think it shows you took 3 days. It's a masterpiece! Loved your flowers (our minds must be channeling each other. I made some similar flowers recently! I'm sort of 'flower challenged'). Loved all the lacey elements on your elegant, and so lovely in white & gold. This looks to me like you used the Resplendant Rectangles S/B die. It's so very pretty. Loved your oval on the top layer too. Icing on the cake....TFS & have a wonderful Sunday.
