Golden Autumn Leaves

Gold has been trendy for a while now and I've resisted using it because it's just not me. The only thing gold I own is my wedding ring. But as I was organizing my craft room, I stumbled upon some old gold embossing powder that was just begging to be used. So, here's the result, which was inspired by so many lovely challenges going on right now. I used my Penny Black Foliage Fancy set. I inked the solid images with distressed ink spritzed then with a little water before stamping.
I then heat embossed the detailed images with gold. The sentiment is from Penny Black as well. I finish the card with a simple flag sentiment, button and a burlap string. Adhesives are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Challenges: Virginia's View, Shabby Tea Room, The Paper Players, Runway Inspired, Pals Paper Arts.
