Dazzled In Gold and Bling

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog.
This fortnight over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 I'm dazzling you with Gold and Bling.  
It feels a little strange not colouring and image and using my cutting dies instead.
I wish you could see these Butterflies each of their bodies are gold as it doesn't show up that well in the photo.

Sketch #164

This fortnight our prize is a guest designer spot on Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 until December.

As from the first week in August we've decided that we are going to take Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 
monthly so two new sketches will be available on the first Wednesday of each month, so our next challenge will start on 
7th August 2019 
so don't forget the date and put it on your calendar.

Challenges I'm Entering:
Card Recipe:
1. Base: White French Linen.
2. Coloured Card: Iced Cocoa by Bazzill and gold card stock.
3. Design Paper:

4.  Bling: As my focal point on my card.

5. Edges of the card dabbed with gold ink.

6. Tools used: 

7. Cutting Dies Used

The smaller gold flowers have been cut out from this Cuttlebug Die.

Classic Circles and Pettite
Scolloped Circle for the back of my card.

9. Embossing Folder Used: Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug

10. Inside and the back of the card.

Take care and happy crafting everyone.
