Penny Black in Gold & Green

Thanks for all your support of my new Penny Black Stamp Squad position & sweet comments on my projects so far.  I love PB background stamps & over a week ago I stamped roman surround, 40-201, in Delicata Golden Glitz onto cream cardstock.  It's so beautiful I didn't want to cover it up & have been just looking at it on my table.  Finally last night I was able to make it into a card.  I black embossed a leaf from dahlias, 30-159, 5 times onto the same cardstock & sponged them with VersaMagic Sage & Niagara Mist.  Then I brushed on Tsukineko Shimmer Mist Gold, curved them up with my fingers & attached them over some gold floss onto the background.  Fortunately I found just the right color button in my stash.  The panel is mounted with foam tape to the card front on which I stamped the sentiment, also from dahlias. One of my college roommates has been on my mind & so I think this will go to her.  Hope you like my newest Penny Black project & maybe you'll be inspired to create something with gold.  It's back in vogue, you know!  By the way, check out the guest designer this week on the Penny Black blog--very inspiring!
