Card Crafter's Circle this week it's Pot of Gold- to use Gold in your creation. I have used this wonderful girl and watering can called Lola from Milk Coffee since I have a love for collecting watering cans. This pic looks a bit bright, to see it clearer just click on the pic and then you can see it better!
I have used a couple new things on my card today. Well new techniques I've not used before. One is the background I created myself using a new stamp from a set by Heidi Grace that I received as a blog candy from my friend Karen. Then I also used another stamp from that same set to create the corners. I first stamped them with pigment ink and then used some gold embossing powder and heat gun to give it that shiny gold finish. I must say that it was fun to play with these new things!
For the card, I layered them all together with another strip of DP from Stampin' Up and added a blue bow from Offray. For a final touch I added a beautiful circle sentiment that I found at Hanniele's Desert Diva Blog. (it's free!, and there are lots to choose from )
