Flower Card with a Gold Accents

Tonight I have been making more cards.  I used Baked Brown Sugar card stock and Petite Petals punch.  The background cardstock and flowers are Whisper White.

First using Crumb Cake ink I stamped the card using a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I love this set as they provide wonderful background accents without being too intrusive into the rest of the card.  Using a sponge dauber, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky ink I then highlighted around the edges of each flower.  Using the back of my inkpad scrubbing pad and the end of a round pencil I pressed the flowers into the foam backing to make the flowers curl.  I then used Candy Dots and adhered these to the middle of the flowers and adhered the flowers using glue dots to the card.

I then used my leaf scoring tool from my Susan's Garden toolkit and scrap pieces of gold card, which were remnants from die cutting Christmas words I cut a few days ago to make some Christmas cards. I am a terrible person for not throwing away even the tiniest scrap of paper and on this occasion I am really glad as these leave shapes in gold I think make these cards simply amazing.

So of course the 'amazing you' was then heat embossed using gold embossing powder.
