Gold & Pink

cfc99




I'm so happy gold is again popular in the world of cardmaking--not just for the holidays.  I've always loved using gold, but lately I've been trying out the new to me combo of gold with pink.  Today's card is for CAS-ual Friday's birthday challenge & is made with Penny Black stamps.  I gold embossed the rose & the distressed edges.   Delicata Golden Glitz is swiped on the sentiment piece (stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia) & the card edges.  Also thought I'd share a picture of my favorite pink rhododendron.  They're very popular in Oregon & are so beautiful but only for a couple weeks.  Hubby has the chore of taking off the dead blooms & keeps threatening to tear them all out.  He's kidding--I think! Happy Spring--especially to those of you with snow right now!  Maybe you can feel spring looking at the picture until you have it at your house.

  2. Oh, did I ever need that pretty flower photo, Greta - thank you! We've got snow coming down as I type this - excuse me, but isn't it May 1st?! *SIGH*

    I love your card - that gold embossed rose looks so pretty with the pink!

  3. Very pretty, Greta! I love how the rose looks embossed in gold. And the rhododendrons are gorgeous! They would never last in the Texas heat so I will have to just admire yours.

  5. Gold & pink look fabulous together! I want to try it now :) I always reach for pink & silver. Totally gorgeous blooms - I remember LOADS of red ones outside our house in Vancouver as a kid. My tulips are almost all the way up - next come buds! I can't wait :)

  7. Love the pink and gold together Greta! And those spring blooms, very pretty! The rhododendron haven't bloomed here yet. The tulips are beginning to fade though so it won't be long ;)

  9. This gold rose is so elegant, Greta! I love that you gilded the edges too and love it with the pink! Rhododendrons are such pretty flowers. We don't have any in our yard but I did see some blooming last week. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

  13. Greta, I really like your rhododendron. I forget how pretty they are until they start blooming in the spring and they sure do put on a show!

    I think the gold on your card is so elegant and I love the rose stamp! The colors are so perfect this time of year!
