Floral with Gold Accents

"To please himself only the cat purrs."

Hi, Friends......

I am back with the second in the series of four cards for the retirees at our Hope Center.  You can see the other one that I posted so far HERE.

This one has subtle colors in pale aqua, cream and pale apricot, but I think the metallic gold accents really liven it up.

I used a couple different brands of flowers for this card.  The dreamy, translucent ones are LaLiberi (which I got on JoAnn clearance) and the others are Prima.

The dazzling glass center of the middle flower is also clearance LaLiberi.  I LOVE how it glows when the light hits it just right!!

The gold polka-dot paper is from my DCWV stash and the swirly flower patterned paper is K&Co. 
Here's a side shot where you can see the gleam of the metallic gold in the dotted panel and in the gorgeous gold lacy ribbon.  I do love gold!!!  Also, you can see the pretty sparkle of the Prima flower with the pearl center.  

Hope you enjoyed seeing this pretty floral card with the gold accents.  I love it when you take time to leave comments and would also love for you to become a follower (use gadget in sidebar) if you are so inclined.  :)

Have a lovely week.  I hope your spring weather is better than ours has been for the last few days!!!
