Hello and welcome....

Card base is an 8" square then matts of antique gold and white card added to the base card

I then cut a piece of acetate to 6" square, then added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to it, removed the backing and added Mulled Wine Gilding Flakes to it.  These were burnished in using a piece of  'rub it scrub it' 

This piece was then embossed using the Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder

I die cut 2 pieces of white card using the Lavish Swirls Die Set and adhered them across the gilding flakes

Using the outer cutting die and the larger die from the New Zealand Collection 'Hamilton' I die cut and embossed them onto white card

Using the outer cutting die, from the same set, I die cut another piece of the antique gold card

The sentiment was stamped with a clear embossing pad, metallic gold rich embossing powder, by WOW, sprinkled over the stamped image, excess powder removed and the sentiment was then heat set prior to adhering onto the antique gold card

I added a panel of antique gold card then a smaller panel of white card to the inside

I purposely didn't add any flowers to the card because I think this could also pass for a man's card.  Whoever wins this may choose to add their own flowers.  If you do may I suggest white flowers?
