Peace Dove in Gold and Cream

This morning was the first time I set foot in my craft room this week. I wanted to make a card for this week's challenge on CK/PCMB forum. It's a sketch challenge hosted by my friend Barbara. She also included an optional challenge of doing white on white. I didn't exactly do the white on white. Instead I used a gold and cream color scheme. I heat embossed the image in gold and embossed the papers with three different Cuttlebug folders. The background is gold vellum. I matted the circle and rectangle in gold handmade paper and added the gold nail heads to the corners to cover up my adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has a spooktacular (and SAFE) Halloween!!

Stamp: Christmas Fillagree clear set (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Versamark; gold EP
Paper: Cream cardstock, gold vellum, gold handmade paper
Embellishments: Circle, rectangle and long rectangle Nestabilities; D'Vine Swirls, Victoria and Script embossing folders (Cuttlebug); ribbon, nail heads
Techniques: Heat Embossing, dry embossing
Finished card size: A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

Love this card Judy! I just got that Victoria CB folder, so I'm glad you are giving me some motivation to use it...not that I need motivation to use embossing folders. I do love texture on my cards though. I'm actually trying to design a card in my head using those Xmas mice you sent me a while back. I love your card and how you used them in circles. Wish me luck!
