Pretty & Pink, and gold!

Hi! I'm back today with a very girlie and sparkly card :-) Both the Curtain Call challenge and Just Add Ink have gorgeous photo inspiration cards full of loveliness so I tried to combine my ideas of them into this card. I used possibly my favourite stamp set of all time, from Mama Elephant and embossed it in gold onto the vellum, added this onto some pink polka dots and more gold, then added a scattering of gold hearts & shimmery sequins plus a couple of strips of gold glitter tape - yum! I would have added gold chevron washi tape if I had some, but I don't! :-) I'm also going to enter it in to this weeks Papertake challenge of Anything Goes. Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies;
Sentiment - Mama Elephant 'Make a Wish'
Paper - Carta Bella 'Sew Lovely' (available here)
Dies - Lil' Inker 'Stitched Mats: Squares' & Impression Obsession 'Heart of Hearts'
Other - gold embossing powder, Moonshine sequins & gold mirror card

Wow Wow Wow! I adore so many elements on this card. The off set square papers in the background look fab, love the gold tape and all the little sparkly embellishments are perfect.

Thanks for sharing this card at Just Add Ink.

I love how you treated the gold panel so casually (offsetting it a bit) - when you treat something so luxurious like that it (to me) shows a fun modern and edgy attitude! Pinned for future CASing!

Such a stunning card Beth! I actually don't like the colour gold but I love your card, you have used the gold so well against the pink. That sentiment is stunning too, I was so tempted by the set and then took it out of my cart. I wish I had bought it now! xx
