Second Post of the Day!

My second post of the day......I'm on a roll!

This is a card for my In Law's Golden Wedding Anniversary which is happening later on this week.

I wanted to go for something fairly clean and simple for this and so I opted for the lovely Lily Image from Little Claire's, which I thougt would be just rught for the occassion.

It's been a very long time since I've done any heat embossing, but since I was going for a plain, unadorned image here, I felt it needed a bit of lift so I have embossed the main image and the corner flourishes with gold twinkle powder.

For the base card I have used some lovely pearlescent card which happens to have a slight golden sheen to it. Unfortunately it doesn't come through in the photo (I'm no David Bailey) but on the real thing it looks really nice and enhances the overall 'goldness'.

Finally I have to mention the lovely nestie - I an always so chuffed when I use these and it comes out of the cuttlebug with all of the loops perfectly cut - It gives me a real buzz for some reason (I know - I am a bit of a saddo!)

Anyway, I don't have any specific challenges to enter this one for, but I thought I would put it in to the Allsorts Anything Goes Challenge, as it represents something quite different to what I would normally do.

Here's where you can find the challenge:

So that's me finished with the postings for now.
