Flowers with a Touch of Gold and a "Sneak Peek"

I made a card inspired by some gift bags at Target...Flowers with gold accents in their leaves and centers...
I stamped the flowers with Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass and Stampin Up Peach Parfait(a retired color).  I heated the stamped flowers to dry then used my embossing bag over them to remove any static before versamarking all the leaves and centers and covering them with gold embossing powder.  I heated them all at the same time...so cool to see the magic all at once:)!!  Added a layered, die cut, 3time gold embossed "hello" ...also from Simon...whew.  I was told by my daughter at Christmas that GOLD was a big thing...and although I have seen it around, thought this was my perfect lead in to it:)...Target Inspiration (I LOVE that store!!).  
AND...as I told you in my Ink and Paper Giveaway post (you can enter until the 19th),  Simon Says Stamp will be revealing their Spring Release next Wednesday, the 21st!!  I have been given a peek of one thing from that release to show you...I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SEE IT ALL....HOW 'BOUT YOU??!!!  Until then, a peek will have to do...
 Hope you have a fantastic weekend!! Hugs!! Lisa

  8. The color of the card base is Papertrey white...it may "look" a little blue due to the time of day I photographed...hard to get it just right, sometimes...thanks for asking, Kris:)!!
