Just Us Girls # 367 Wild Card

We have Wild Card Week up over at Just Us Girls Challenge!
They want the sentiment to be the focal point of the card!
It is hard to see all the gold goodness from the photo above, here is another shot of it:
I thought it would be elegant to have gold berries in place of red ones, so I used my versamark pen and dotted the berries with it, then after gold embossing the berries, I decided to add some some to the tips of the leaves too.  The sentiment was gold embossed as well.  The leaves were sponged on with some orange zest and summer sunrise ink.
This was my third attempt at this card!!  And the reason fr so many sequins is to cover up bloopers!  After all this work I just couldn't trash it!
Head over to the blog as there is lots of wonderful inspiration from that design team!

Colleen, I love those gold leaves against the white background - clustering them around the frame was a great idea. So glad you shared this fabulous card with us at JUGS this week
