Black and gold

Hello everyone

Yes I am back!! Sorry to have absent for such a long time. I have been busy behind the scenes crafting away but unfortunately cannot share with you at the moment. 
Today's card is one of those which seemed like a good idea at the time but now I am not so sure. I am not sure if it works or not but I am sharing it anyway. Let me know what you think, just wait a minute while I hide behind the sofa!!
I have used - 

  • Women inkognito stamp from Visible image
  • gold embossing powder
  • matt black card
  • old gold centura pearl
  • Sheena's stamping card
  • Spellbinder's 5x7 matting basics
  • Spellbinder's floral ovals
  • Spellbinder's oval nestie
  • Die'sire happy birthday die
  • Darice embossing folder
  • Pebeo renaissance gold gilding wax
  • antique linen distress ink

I have highlighted the embossed detail with gilding wax.
The inside of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - 

Thank you for stopping by

  1. I think it works very well Lesley, it has a real feel of opulence and the cameo all adds to that feel. So you can come out from behind the sofa now so I can thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.
