Wishing you a Pot of Gold - Verve

Hi, Friends........

I am back again with another card in March colors made with the lovely digital freebie by Julee Tilman.

Yes, Julee over at Verve Stamps has done it again! This month she made a really cute St. Patrick's Day themed digital set called Lucky
Day Digital Set. Oh, my goodness......you WANT this set. Adorable, right? It's a FREE DOWNLOAD only through March 17, 2017. AND......Julee is hosting another challenge on the Verve Stamps blog with her always fabulous GC prize if you use this digi set. Wow!! Thank you, Julee!!!! (She is making me into a digital stamp lover, despite all my kicking and screaming!! Ha!)

I used a layered background from scraps that I already had on hand and double embossed it: first with my Darice - Interlocking Circles folder, then brayering over the textured parts with Versamark and heat embossing with gold powder. Perfect for this sentiment...don't you think? I accented some of the words with my Pilot - Metallic Gold Extra Fine Tip Marker. I used my Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set for the black scalloped panel and the little gold hearts (from scraps of foiled cardstock). Sweet!! I finished it off with some shimmery gold ribbon from my stash. Love how this turned out and I hope you like it, too!!

Thank you so much for your visit and for your kind comments. Don't forget to hurry and snag that digital freebie over at Verve Stamps. You only have a few more days!!!

I could hear your kicking and screaming all the way in Florida, Janis! Such a sweet sentiment, and the gold is fabulous! Thanks for the great photo showcasing the EP on the background! Wow! Glad you are becoming used to digitals - I kicked and screamed until about 3 years ago. LOL

If only our printers could print with VersaMark ink, right? LOL Have a great day, Janis! hugs, de

Wow Janis...you've done it again with that gorgeous double embossing and spectacular texture and shine! Your dramatic color combo and glittery gold ribbon make this card look like beautiful jewelry, or something you actually could find at the end of the rainbow. I keep coming back to admire this one again and again!
