gold embossing. . . .

is one of my favorite things to use for a card.  I decided to use it for Deborah's June CCC card which was sent to Greta Hess  She has let me know she received it, so here it is:



I usually just go with the friendship theme for this challenge because it eliminates a lot of fretting over what to do.  LOL  I do wish I had placed the flower a bit further up on this, but I didn't want to ruin the card by attempting to do so. 

We are having a spell of hot weather (90 degrees or so) this week.  Summer has definitely arrived!

TFL!

Love the teal and gold!! I've been seeing a lot of gold lately... I did make a card with gold embossing ... haven't shared it yet ... This is lovely.

Such an elegant design, Joy! Love the teal combined with gold and the painted flower layered over the vine stamp!

what a delightful card Joy. Lucky Greta on getting such a beautiful card.

beautiful card! I haven't done any gold embossing in forever myself. I think your flower is perfectly placed-it's balanced by the greeting and butterfly. We're having very hot, humid weather in the 90's all week. I like it to a point but good thing for AC :)

As I told you, you out did yourself with this one, Joy! It's breathtakingly beautiful & I will treasure it in my collection! I am so lucky you signed up after me.

embossing on the background and
flower. The gold and turquoise
color combo is gorgeous.
