Every now and again I have to do GAWDY. Yup, this is the last one of the VSN challenge and I had to do my gawdy card! LOL
The vellum overlay was stamped on the back with Craft Barely Banana to give a bit of color to the centers of the gold flowers. I then flipped the vellum, stamped in gold Encore and embossed the flowers, then stamped the berries and leaves.
It looked a bit unfinished so I added the black corners. They looked plain, so I stamped the Doodle This swirlies in Gold encore to give them a "pop" (like the mongo gold roses weren't enough "pop", huh?)...
This one almost hurts my eyes, but I have a friend who will LOVE it. Yup, she loves gawdy....

This is NOT gawdy!! And if it is, then I wish I was your friend who was getting this!! Seriously, I adore this card -- love all the bright finishes! And those photo corners are just perfect! Darn it, you're making me want Mixed Bouquet, and I DON'T NEED IT!!! :)
