Hello Handsome

Hello!  I made this card for my husband's birthday back in the spring:


It was very difficult to capture the many golden touches on here:  the tiny fleur-de-lis motifs all over the patterned paper, the two different shades of golden sequins, the gold in the tapestry ribbon (a gift from a friend), the gold-embossed sentiment frame.

Maybe you can see them better in the photo below?


I wanted my man to know how special he is to me, and tried to get as many "luxe" touches on his cad as possible!



Stamps: sentiment - Year Round Sentiments - Hero Arts; frame - Boutique Borders: Love Paper: Crumb Cake - Stampin' Up!; fleur de lis pattern - Mariposa Stack - DCWV Ink: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: tapestry ribbon - Rebecca Deeprose Accessories & Tools: 10mm gold sequin - Pretty Pink Posh; gold sequin (kids' art stash); coordinating frame die - Papertrey Ink; gold embossing powder - Stampin' Up!
