Pink, Green & Gold

Well, guess I just pull on my socks without even looking at my feet. Today I happened to look at my left foot & wow--it's bruised on the top & both sides.  Definitely sprained that ankle, but luckily it looks worse than it feels.  I'm walking fine & trying to follow hubby's advice to slow down.
The current challenge at Impression Obsession is to use pink & green--a combo I love, especially with gold. 
I knew immediately that I wanted to use the beautiful IO Sketched Roses, so I embossed it on Bristol paper with SSS Antique Gold embossing powder.  The coloring was done with 2 pink Zigs & I added some pale green for a hint of leaves.  The solid pink piece was made with the same 2 pink Zigs.  Debated about leaving it plain, but in the end I went with PPP pink sequins for embellishment.  I'm also entering W2CB, where my friend Cat is guest designing.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  4. So sorry about that sprain and bruises, getting older isn't always golden. This is gorgeous and I like how you added the hints of green leaves~ Love making 'thinking of you' cards because they can go with many different occasions.
