Golden Posies

Dear Ones~
What a beautiful day! Love it when the sun is shining, the temp is not too hot or too cold, and there is a gentle breeze. Michigan is a fickle lady, so when she gives us a day like this I am beyond happy.

Today's card was created for the Just Us Girls Challenge, to use gold in your card, and the STV Monday Challenge, to do some masking.

Here's my card:

I kinda threw this one together last night. Sometimes the ones you don't think about so much come together better than those that you ruminate over. I tend to want to micro-manage things, and often the project gets lost in the creation of it....know what I mean? Anyway, I love the look of gold embossing with watercolor. I have been using my new Zig Clean Color Brush Pens, and I absolutely LOVE them. If you are on the fence about them. I highly recommend. But I digress.......

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Wild Wisteria and Wild Dandelion
Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Paper House Artist Patterned Paper
GKD Natures Greetings Stamp Set
GKD Birthday Blessings Stamp Set
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Zig Clean Color Brush Pens
MFT Die-namics Happy Hello Die
Gold Foil Card Stock
Stash Enamel Dots and Ribbon
