A Scenic Season Glittered With Gold

Happy Thursday people :)
This week has flown by and I haven't had a chance to post on my blog until today. I do have a beautiful card to share though, so I hope it makes up for it!
This is a card I created over the weekend at my wonderful upline Carol's place when we had our ASI team meeting.
I don't have this stamp set and have been looking at it for a while in the catalogue. I decided to borrow Carol's set and see what I could come up with.

I first stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then sponged the light effects around the trees and sponged the skyline. I Versamarked the sentiment next and heat embossed it with gold powder. It is difficult to see but the trees have gold embossing on them also. I'd like to say this was intentional but it wasn't... I forgot to use my static cling before heat embossing with the gold powder and some stuck to the trees. At the time I was so disappointed but I thought I would heat it anyway and see what happens. The trees took on a golden, glittery tone that is so striking in person. I'd call it a happy accident LOL...
I then mounted my top note piece onto the Brushed Gold card stock I never knew existed until last weekend I don't know how I could have missed it in the catalogue because it is gorgeous!!!
Add some delicate Baja Breeze seam binding, Not Quite Navy DSP and card stock. Add pearls and adhere to a card base of River Rock.
And there you have it, a scenic setting glittered with gold. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
