Mint, gold and leather

The Play Date Cafe's challenge uses these colors:


I had pulled out some papers and had decided to do something with my chevron dies when my eyes saw their new logo:

Grab Our Badge!

And I changed course a bit; here is what I came up with:

PDCC#155


supplies: white cardstock, gold paper, design papers from Echo Park's This & That by Lori Whitlock, Die-Namics Chevron Stripes die, Hero Arts CL508 Luscious Patterned Flowers, VersaMark ink and Ranger  Extra Fine Detail gold embossing powder, aqua, brown, and gold pearls

And a detail photo to show the glow of the gold paper and embossing:

PDCC#155, detail

Definitely not my usual style, but it was fun seeing if I could put this together......what do you think?
