Roses and Shiny Gold

We're enjoying the NFL playoffs, even though our team didn't make it.  Couldn't wait to use my new Impression Obsession Sketched Roses again & finished up this card between games.
This time I gold embossed on Bristol paper & colored with 2 pink & 2 green Zigs.  Then I spritzed heavily with gold Perfect Pearls for that awesome shimmer. 
This is my first card using the IO All-in-One Frames-Ovals which I cut from black cardstock & stacked 2 high.  I also cut the sentiment (Greetings Top Edgers) from black & attached it to the back of the frame before adhering it to the roses panel.  The card front was heat embossed with the same gold powder to match.  Sequins provide a bit more shine & the panel was mounted with fun foam.  I'm entering Impression ObsessionAllsorts, HLS Watercolor, Time Out & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
