My Cards

 I could not help myself, I love using gold and I made two cards for you. The first card uses the Sending Love kit.  This kit includes sentiments that you can run through a heat embossing machine.  I colored the flowers with a copic marker and the rest is all gold. 
For the second card I went to Black Onyx card stock and stamped with the trees from the Christmas Wishes.  I did some gold embossing around the edges too and added gold twine.  
One birthday card and one Christmas card, all with gold.  

Come on and play along with us.  It is a random winner, so everyone has a chance.  


  1. WOW! This is a fun Challenge AND your cards are stellar! Love all that gold goodness! Your flowers are gorgeous and that golden flourish is glorious! Loving your 2nd card too, cold, snowy winter night and your majestic golden trees dot the landscape! FABULOUS!!!

  2. I love both of your cards. I especially love the gold embossing on the darker card stocks. I always think that is so elegant and I love how you used the stamp pad and embossing powder to make a fun frame too. Those gold trees look like they are all lit up and shining in the dark.

  3. Your cards are fabulous! I love adding gold

  4. OH. MY. GOSH!!!!! Both cards are stunning, but the black and have knocked my sox off with that one. It's absolutely breath taking!!! I can't stop looking at it!!!!
