October 30

Happy Wednesday!
Can you believe October is almost over?!
I guess what they say is true...
time flies when you're having fun!!

Today, Girl Friday Virginia is bringing us her midas touch,

2 gorgeous visions in embossed gold!
The first is embossed over pattern paper which really gives it stunning look.
If you look closely, she stamped it first in a warm neutral to give a soft shadow effect
to those gorgeous gold wheat stalks.
Next she embossed gold over chocolate *yum* on the 

Wow, oh wow!
She has used Bold Wishes in the coolest way!
So much color and lots of cool stuff happening here!
Here are Virginia's notes so you can see all the coolness:
Special features:
1. I applied various Distressed Inks over part of the Chevron stencil (by Studio Calico) to create an unique background.
2. To create more visual interests, I added the distressed chipboard and faux stitching.
3. The bold sentiment from Bold Wishes is perfect with this. 
4. Stamp the sentiment in light and darker shades of inks to create a bigger impact!

Well, that's it for today!
I'll be back tomorrow to put a little "wee!" into your Halloween :)

The gold embossing adds a big wow factor to Virginia's card and matching tag. The bold colors and large sentiment on the first card really pop. I especially like that she double stamped the sentiment.

Virginia's cards are fabulous! I love the impact of the gold in the first card, and her inking and stamping on the 2nd card is amazing! Such a fun way to create the shadows on the sentiment
