Thinking of you in Gold....

When Claire first showed us this set called Asian Gardens, the first thing I thought of was gold. 

But I couldn't put my finger on my idea, until I remembered the little silk jammies that my step-dad brought home for our children when he visited China years ago. They were bright turquoise with gold and brown on them - absolutely beautiful silk and they loved to wear them!

I stamped the leaves of the tree in Versamark first (maybe backwards to some I know lol!) sprinkled gold embossing powder on and used my heat gun to bring out the beautiful gold!

Then I stamped the trunk of the tree in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink- The cardstock is Prism cardstock so there is a slight texture to the trunk-which I was fine with......

I outlined the panel with my Krylon Leafing Pen - very simple to use -

The base of my card is Hawaiian Shores cardstock and I stamped the background stamp that is included with this Asian Gardens stamp set in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

Then I tied some gold ribbon that I got at Fabricland (dear goodness don't get me started on that gorgeous store!!) around the base of the card and voila!

Thank you for sticking with me through all of these previews - I had so many I'm still previewing lol!
