I made this card for a friend who has become a superannuitant, and here in New Zealand you are given a gold card for special 'seniors discounts', hence my theme of a golden card, and lots of gold in the card.
I loosely followed the sketch over at STAMPlorations November Challenge,
starting with the tag shape, which I cut from a piece of Prima journaling card.
The (Simons Says Single Rose Die) roses were cut from a piece of dark pink paper that I had smooshed with Orchid and Lavender pearlscent inks to tone in with the tag.
The sentiment was cut with a S/B die, the top layer was sponged with gold delicata ink, and layered over pink card stock, attached on an angle across the base of the card.
I used some eyelashes yarn to thread through the top of the tag - carefully cut to have just three colours showing.
The final detail after everything was mounted onto the gold background paper (from a Botanicals pad by Trim Craft) and then onto the pink base, was the two groups of three pink pearls.
We had news recently that my beloved husband has an un-treatable cancer, so if I am not around much in blogland in the coming months, please understand that I am otherwise occupied - I will be here when I can, and comment when I can, but my first priority is him.
