Gilded Thanks

Hi, friends! I enjoyed some much needed time off this weekend and I hope you did, too. I caught up with some things around the house including working in my garden and organizing the garage, a never ending battle. I made sure I set some time aside for stamping too, and made this card for three challenges.

I'm playing along with the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches this week, and also the inspiration challenge at the Altenew blog. Though I don't have any Altenew stamps that mimic the beautiful mosaics in the inspiration photo, I channeled the shades of blue and gold. Finally, the challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "Thank You".

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Painted Flowers, Super Script 2 (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Gold Foil, White Vellum (SU)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Pool Party, Marina Mist (SU)
Tools: Heat Tool
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Washi Tape (SU), Enamel Dots (MME)

Have a great day, everyone! Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sandy, this is a really beautiful card. I find your gilded embossing a unique touch and one I can honestly say I never would have thought of, but now I might have to try myself. Crystal
