WMSC45+Paper Crafts Color Inspiration Challenge#4

Happy Monday, I have a happy news to share. It's a great way to start Monday. I am the winner of Paper Crafts April 2011 Gallery Challenge. You can check out my post Here.

I want to share two cards before I head to make dinner. Both cards are using the color combination from CIC'4 (Paper Crafts Color Inspiration Challenge#4). First card I also use the sketch from WMSC45.
I white emboss the focal image on a metallic gold vellum. The color is soft yet striking. Stamp is K5405 Grape Flourish from Hero Arts.  Sentiment is from PTI's Mat Stack 2 set. I also punch out several butterflies from the same gold vellum and glue together with the gold thread tassel. (Thanks Pauline and Julia.)
 Gold+White+Pink=Beautiful combination.

Second card I also made for PTI's Make It Monday#13: Impression Plate Tricks#2.
Erin Lincoln is showing a very cool technique to use the Impression plate and PTI's die at the same time. Make sure to check out her video. Let me know which one you like better?

Close up to see the details. 

Thanks for stopping by.
