Golden Time

This is typical of me, isn't it...a drought of posts, and then several in
quick succession. Life has been rather hectic lately, and will continue
to be so for another few weeks, but then I hope to be able to settle
into a more steady pace after that.

This is another design team card from the bundle of cards I made for Kaaren at 
Fat Cat's Card Corner (see previous post). When I received this die, I was at
odds as to what to do with it, but after a while I thought that because the 
die was quite detailed, I would keep the embellishments to a minimum.

A close up look at the flower and leaves I cut using one of the other die-
sets that Kaaren sent me. The paper I used for the matting and the flowers
is a beautiful pearlised damask sheet I have had for many years, and 
honouring my resolution to start to use up some of my immense hoard
collection of beautiful papers, I cut into it. The photo appears as if
the paper is grey and silver, but it is actually gold on cream.
