The other 2 cards for the gold mingle

Well, these were two cards I sweated blood and tears over lol. I've never struggled so much as having to stick to one colour!!!

The flower card was made using a piece of gold embossed card someone sent me a while ago thats been sat in my craft box for ages. The image was stamped, embossed with gold ep and layered up. The frame and the edge of the card were originally white - but I attacked them with the inkpad and gold ep lol - same for the flower button - that was originally pink!!! Sentiment stamp is one I've had for a while but thought it fitted the flower theme - ribbon & brads from stash!

The angel was stamped in gold and paper pieced with Laura Ashley papers. The gold backing paper was stamped randomly with a shamrock and 'luck of the irish' stamp from the dovecraft mini stamps - sentiment from same pack. oval was mounted onto a piece of the Laura Ashley paper to give a narrow edge to break the gold up. Ribbon & peel offs from stash.
