Gold Metallic Thank you

A couple of week's ago I shared a thank you card I did for a customer who is getting married in September. This is another thank you card done for Carol using the colours she will be using on her special day.

The background is a Bister background where I sprinkled the powder on my watercolour paper and spritzed with water
until I was happy with the movement. I wanted a softer look, instead of the rough look Bisters can give, and I wanted it darker towards the bottom. Thankfully, it worked the way I wanted it to - just love it when that happens!  
Once my panel was dry I die cut using my stitched rectangle die and attached to my card base of foam strips. For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed using gold embossing powder on 40lb vellum paper, then die cut the leaves from gold metallic paper. I played around with the arrangement until I was happy with the look and finished with sequins for a bit of sparkle. Thanks for having a look today.
