All That Glitters.......

The current challenge at Moxie Fab World is  what Cath calls All That Glitters is Gold, and we are to use gold on our projects.  I thought I'd incorporate it into something fall-like, and in looking through my stamps I found a purchased card that I had saved for inspiration, so I followed its design, though the colors aren't the same.

Starting with a beige card stock, I chose this oak leaf medallion design and a sentiment from the same set (a clear set by The Paper Company Studio that I found several years ago at JoAnne's) and stamped them, then heat-embossed them with Ranger's Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder.  Then I simply trimmed it out, framed it with some gold vellum, and put it on my card base that had been dry embossed with this Cuttlebug folder called Victoria.  It's hard to get a good picture of the gold.  Here's one where I tilted the card to catch the glimmer:

Cath gave us some gorgeous examples, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
