One for the Coach!

A friend of mine saw this card and asked if I could make her one like it in the colors of plum and gold. They're the colors of her daughter's university, and this card is going to her Lacrosse coach as she's about to graduate. I made this with Razzleberry, Vintage Cream, and BG Wisteria DP. The Fifth Avenue Florals images were stamped in Versamark on Razzleberry and embossed with gold EP, cut out and popped up on foam tape. Some gold microbeads were added to the centers. The sentiment is by Verve and was stamped in Razzleberry ink and 3 different sized gold pearls were added for interest. I outlined all the edges of the card and sentiment panels with a gold deco pen that really brings out the gold colors. I think this coach is going to be pleasantly surprised when she receives this card:)
Thanks for stopping in today on this sunny Friday. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to be VERY busy finishing up those last-minute items!
