Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

Hello there!

I just wanted to pop by to share with you a card I created for Paper Smooches Trend Watch Challenge.  

The trend for this week is to design a card with gold.  One of my favorite color combinations is gold and pink, so I knew I had to make a card for this challenge.  Here is my take on the challenge:

This card was made using the In Bloom Stamp Set from PTI.  I colored the flowers with some pink copics and then embossed the flowers in gold.  I used Inktense Pencils to give the leaves more of a watercolor effect.  Here's a closer look:

For the background of the card, I used vellum with a gold polka-dot pattern and Sweet Blush paper from PTI for the card base.  Next, I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches.

Thanks for visiting today and happy crafting!
