Dazzling Diva #65

I'm back with another Dazzling Diva challenge.  We're all about color this week and using one or any combination of Golden Glimmer, Pucker Me Pink or Princess Pink.  

What gorgeous inspiration right?  Well, with Easter coming up and me wishing for Spring, I thought of a floral arrangement in these colors:

I started out by embossing my background.  Added some die cuts in Golden Glimmer and Princess Pink.  Taking my cue from the inspiration photo, I've added some glitter to my flowers.  The die cut tag is in two parts...more Golden Glimmer that's been embossed with the same embossing plate, and some vellum that's been heat embossed in gold.  Not difficult by any stretch and the craft metal really packs a punch doesn't it?

I did a little stamp surgery on the sentiment stamp and cut it in half as I wanted to split the sentiment. Doesn't hurt things at all and you can still use the stamp as originally intended.

Here's what I used:  
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow and vellum
Ink:  Encore Gold
Stamps:  Clearly Besotted
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Quilted Stitched Pattern die, Penny Black Field of Dreams die, Hero Arts Spring Branch die, MFT Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 2, E.K. Success powder tool, Hero Arts gold embossing powder, heat tool, Stampendous fuschia crushed glass glitter, adhesives

And of course, the following Add a Little Dazzle metals:
