Colour 351 & Stamp-a-Faire 2016: Gilded Gold- Sending Birthday Cheer

Well hello and happy Sunday/weekend! I'm here today with a card that was made for two challenges-- the colors were inspired by the beautiful and regal color scheme of ColourQ #351 and gold "touches" throughout were inspired using the techniques that Danielle Flanders challenged us to use in the Gilded in Gold Stamp-a-Faire (SAF) 2016 video:

I pulled out my Don't Forget to Write Make-it-Market kit and used my trusty MISTI to get near-perfect stamping. The card base is PTI's Soft Stone, upon which I overlaid a chevron cover-plate (in white). Then, from Hawaiian Shores cardstock, I cut the "base square" using my MFT Stitched Scalloped Squares. Then I die cut and stamped the frame, with the edges accented in gold and the "mail stripes" in PTI's Hawaiian Shores. The sentiment, both the die-cut "sending" and "birthday cheer" (stamped in PTI's Amethyst Allure) are from the kit but the stitched banner is from MFT Blueprints 29.
The floral spray was mounted using dimensional adhesive after having stamped it in an array of colors, namely Hawaiian Shores, Enchanted Evening, Amethyst Allure and embossed with gold accents.
I finished the card off with some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and then lined an envelope, using an awesome stitched die from Lil Inker Designs, with PTI Soft Stone striped patterned paper. And that's it! As always, thanks for stopping by and craft on! :)
