A little note...

Hi there!

Happy Saturday to you!

5 in the afternoon here and our weekend in the UAE is almost something of the past. As you might or might not know, the working week starts on a Sunday and end on a Thursday, in this part of the world...

... But we had a great relaxing weekend, spending lots of time outdoors, with just enough time to make a card for a couple of my favorite challenges!

So, here it is:


Pretty Posies from Casual Friday stamps


Challenges:

Freshly made sketches ~ Sketch by Cindy ( a classic favorite layout )

CASual Fridays ~ Everything turns to gold.

Darnell's NBUS ~ With the optional twist of coloring on kraft.

I stamped the Pretty Posies (NBUS) from CASual Friday stamps with Versamark and gold embossed it.
I used Derwent Inktense pencils to color it and added the finishing touches of gold glitter washi tape and rhinestones.



             Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)



That's it for today!

Hugs and thanks for looking!

Hannelie

Your card is gorgeous, as is your coloring ... as is the kraft cardstock you've used! So much texture - mind if I ask: whose cardstock is it? thanks!

Thank you for teaching me something new with this spectacular card, Hannelie! I had no idea that gold embossing would look this magnificent on a kraft card! I can't wait to try it! Of course, your coloring is always flawless! Thank you for playing again in my challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
