Foiled Again

Hello there,

This week is another DT heavy week, but there are only two new challenges - one tomorrow and one on Thursday - meaning that I had time to also make another little card.

I wanted to use some of my kitty stash, but wasn't sure how, as I also wanted to experiment with creating a foiled effect using embossing powders. This is what I finally came up with:

I used a pre-patterned base card (actually came with a cross stitch kit) with delicate orange flowers. I drew some swirls on some pearlescent green cardstock using a glue pen, and then used Personal Impressions Mirror Gold embossing powder. I layered the image (from Hot Diggidy Dog decoupage pack) onto this panel and layed it centrally on the base card. I used Altenew dies and stamps to create the roses and leaves - stamping with VersaMark and then embossing with the gold on the roses and Wow! Seaglass glitter for the leaves. I layered these onto the base using 3D foam pads.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CCEE 1731 Emboss it
Sweet Stampin' - Summer Fun
CAGI - time to die-cut
AYLI - fav colour duo - I went for green and pink as they make great combination for nature cards, as well as spring or summer themed cards
scrapbook stamp society #122 Summer
Kort 'O' mania #180 Summer Feeling
SUYP #21 Furrything Goes
simply create too #130 Use Flowers

I also have a couple more pictures from the pond near me:
