I wanted to do a mostly gold card, this is what I came up with. The bg flourish and flowers are all Autumn Leaves stamps.
I give Bridget (bfinaly) credit for the idea of embossing the leaves in gold (she did it in silver). At the bottom there's a strip of gold ribbon under the flowers. Dream is part of a bigger die, and while it is die cut from the same gold (as the leaves are too), it has also been embossed with gold ep. The flowers have all been fussy cut (I'm glad I went searching my stash for this flower stamp, as it's an easy one to fussy cut). The centers are gold micro beads.
The dream is placed with my signature crookedness, the harder I try to be straight, the more I'm crooked (sigh)!

Wow, wow, wow! What a stunningly rich and beautiful creation, Jennifer - I just sat and studied it for a while, you even have tiny little golden butterflies tucked in there. The vellum flowers are so light and airy, yet this looks 24 carat gold!!!

There is no such thing as crooked....just artistic interpretation! I am glad you picked these flowers. I love them..and I love the gold embossed leaves too. This is on the whole a most bodacious card. In other words I LOVE it!!

I agree with Bridget! This is a 24-carat wonder! Nothing looks crooked from here and I love that you stashed a little butterfly into the mix. Love those b'flies!
