silver and gold

My first crafty effort of the year - the snow and cold have driven all inspiration away, despite having new goodies to play with, crafting wearing fingerless gloves just doesn't have the same attraction somehow! Anyhow, thanks to Chrisf for the link to the Play Date Cafe - the idea of gold and silver just seemed to be right. The stamped flowers are from the Elusive Images butterfly poppy plate, stamped in black versafine onto gold and silver card - some embossed in detail black, some in clear EP - funnily enough, the clear powder made the stamped image seem a deeper shade of gold/silver rather than black....the multi flower is just layered and held together with a brad. The single colour ones are my version of grungepaper roses, although they don't look very rose- like! This is also entered for Rainbow Lady's challenge, which is 'recycle' - the backing paper is from rescued gift wrap, as is the ribbon - the embossed card is cut from a chocolate box, long since empty.
Apologies for the rather poor photo, would have been better in daylight!
