Sweet Gold

Hello everyone,

Every now and again I make a card that absolutely stuns me. This is one of those cards. It is inspired by this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen Giron.

The red and gold layers are of unknown origin from my paper stash. The red layer has been textured with Sizzix Flourish Texture plate. The black layer is Stampin' Up Basic Black. The images are Hot Off The Press Dazzles Flower stickers that are applied to vellum which was smooshed with Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink.

I love this card. Red, black and gold is such a classic combination. The stickers and the coloured velum turned out better than I expected. I just love it when that happens! I played with adding a sentiment - something heat embossed in gold or black but in the end decided I liked the impact of the three images as they are.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
