Dance

Here's my second post today with my entry for this week's Sunday Stampers challenge We Are Golden which is only just in time after a very busy week working on accounts. You can guess what I'd rather do!
For the challenge, Hels wants to see gold on your creation and my entry is the card here:
My first background was made by stamping B Line Designs SE125K Ribbons and Flowers Background on Southfield Stationers parchment paper (the old fashioned kind not the sort used for Pergamano) and embossing it with Ranger Tarnished Gold powder. I then sponged on Ranger Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Crushed Olive.
The second panel was made by embossing pale lilac card with the embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Ornamental Iron set and then swiping Brilliance Pearlescent Olive ink over the raised areas. When this had dried, I sponged  some VersaColor Lilac ink in the spaces.
I stuck the panels to a gold card blank I made and put a piece of Laura Ashley Love Sonnet ribbon over the join. I printed out the golden ballerina from the Golden Collage Pack by Dezinaworld which I bought from my lovely friend June and then cut her out. I ran the Cool Grey 2 Promarker round the edges for definition.
I printed the text out from the computer, cut it out and then stamped on it using the background stamp and Khaki and Split Pea VersaColor inks. I then added a little Lilac. I assembled the card as shown, adding flowers secured with a gold brad and a gold border sticker from Anitas.
