A Bit of Gold

Hi everyone! Sorry for my awful picture problems. :( I've been battling it out with Photobucket and hope to have it resolved soon! Anyway, I hope you're having a good start to your weekend. This has been quite an exciting week... First with the earthquake, then a tornado watch, and soon a visit from Irene! Hope you're all keeping safe!

I'm popping in today for another Play Date Cafe challenge. I'm loving this inspiration board!


I loved elements from the four pictures on the right, so I used tried to incorporate them all into this card, starting with the three chairs, which which I interpreted as three Pool Party panels on a Very Vanilla background. I meant to curve my corners, but was a little too quick to adhere my card stock and decided to skip the step altogether. Next, the teacup with the flower inspired my round shape behind my blossoms, which I die cut from PTI's Limitless Layers. I love the gold letters in that bottom middle picture, and knew I had to add some to my card. So, out came some gold ribbon from my stash, along with the PTI Wonderful Words die and some Brushed Gold card stock. I stamped "thank" from PTI's Think Big Favorites and added my die cut "you". I added two blooms, stamped with SU!'s Bella Blossoms, embossed on Groovy Guava card stock. Lastly, I added a pretty butterfly, punched on some Secret Garden DSP with a MS punch and layered for dimension. Hope you like it!


  1. Gorgeous! I really love those three panels and the embossed flowers!

  2. OHHH! I love that ribbon and your sentiment (the die cut)! I love that you thought of the three chairs into three panels! YOU ROCK! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the PDCC:)
