My Cards

 I could not help myself, I love using gold and I made two cards for you. The first card uses the Sending Love kit.  This kit includes sentiments that you can run through a heat embossing machine.  I colored the flowers with a copic marker and the rest is all gold. 
For the second card I went to Black Onyx card stock and stamped with the trees from the Christmas Wishes.  I did some gold embossing around the edges too and added gold twine.  
One birthday card and one Christmas card, all with gold.
