Cream & Gold Anniversary


Hello everyone, and a very happy Saturday to you. I have a card to share today that I made for the Mod Squad anniversary challenge. For the flowers and sentiment mat, I heat-embossed several snippets of cream-colored card stock with gold embossing powder, then used a punch to make the flowers, adding ivory pearls to the centers. I cut 2 leafy stems with a die and added the flowers on top of them, then added the satin ribbon and tied it into a soft knot. It looked a little heavy on one side, so I added a couple more tiny flowers randomly just to balance the overall look. The sentiment was also embossed in gold in keeping with the color scheme.

I'm also entering this into the Snippets Playground #128.

Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great weekend!

Carol
