Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash Card #4

Yay!   I was finally able to get my fourth card done for the Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash - today I chose Lea's Mood Board Challenge.  

I was so drawn to the gold dotted scarf in the photo - I love how it looks on the see through material! I used that as my main inspiration and picked up some of the colors as well - the pale pink in the sweater and the raspberry color of the fringe.

I started by stamping the circles from Scenery: Big Bang Confetti with Versamark on vellum.   They were then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.   I die cut the vellum with a PTI banner die and then mounted each pennant onto off white and dark raspberry cardstock.   I used a bit of super thin washi along the top of the pennants and then poked holes in each and ran some gold thread through them to connect them all together.   The background is also stamped with Scenery: Big Bang Confetti in Versamark for a tone-on-tone look. I tried something a little different with the sentiment - I stamped with gold ink, then offset the stamp just a bit and used Versamark and gold embossing powder.   It's subtle, but I think it looks kind of cool!    The sentiment is a combination of the The Big, the Bold and You and Parentville.

I'm hoping to have a chance to do one more (two?   here's hoping!!) card today. It's been snowing all morning, so I am staying in and hibernating in my craft room with my coffee, lol!

  1. Aww! I just love the gold combined with color, it makes it so glam and elegant, but keeps it sweet!
    Very pretty!!!
