The Card Concept Challenge #96-Golden Table




This will be our last challenge for the summer,
and it is a beauty!!!!


I love pink and gold together! So elegant and pretty!

Here is my card:


I got to play with my new June 2018 Small Die of the Month Kit Club from Spellbinders!  I love Spellbinder dies because they beautifully emboss their die cuts!  The gold candles and pretty white flowers are from this set.



I started by making a pretty pink background  by smooshing 
Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on some Bristol card stock.
I also added some splatters with the same colors.
When the panel was dry, I die cut it with the Wonky Borders (Avery Elle) die.


hope I have inspired you to join us here at
