Pink, Cream, and Gold

I so loved Amy's design at CASE Study this week, that I wanted to try it using more color.  I love the color choices at the Stampendous blog challenge for this month, so I put them together:

Pink, cream and gold

supplies: cream and a pearlized pink cardstocks, lifestylecrafts "Vine" embossing folder (found at Archiver's), Nesties labels 18 dies, Cuttlebug label die, Jane's poinsettia (see below) printed on vellum and colored from behind with a pink marker, Hero Arts CL343 Holiday Sayings, Versamark ink and Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder, gold-edged ribbon, gold pearls

Here's a close up showing my pink vellum poinsettia, which is a digital image from Jane found here in her Vintage Christmas set.

  9. Lin this is brilliant. All the details you used for accents and they way they work together makes this a "joy" to look at. The little edging on the ribbon ties in with the embossing on the vellum and the pearls are divine.

  17. Gorgeous poinsettia! I've seen this used in a few places and it's always stunning in it's elegance. I'd be interested to know if you heat embossed the image. The photo seems to show that but if it's digi how did you achieve that? Thanks for joining us at CASE study.
