The Golden Touch

Hello, do you have the golden touch when it comes to gardening? I don't! I do love gardening, but it never turns out like I dream of.  Over at the 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 )
This week's sponsor at Card Crafter's Circle is Milk Coffee and We'd love to see your creations with Gold! The prize this week up for grabs is 3 digis for the winner and 1 for each of the top three! How generous! Lots of chances to win some wonderful images!

Beautiful card, Jennifer! Yay for trying new techniques! Another yay for new toys! Isn't heat embossing fun? I love to watch it melt! :o)

This is such a cute image, and you've done such a nice job of show-casing her. I like the corner stamp you used, and good for you trying a new technique. It is always fun to continue to grow in our crafts. Super job, lady!
