Color Challenge....with love

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

It sure doesn't seem like a Wednesday to me, with the holidays and all, my days are all mixed up!!! LOL!
I decided this year the only New Year's resolution I would make was to participate and a few more challenges on Splitcoaststampers. That is an easy resolution and one I should not have too much trouble keeping!!
So to start things off on the right foot I looked to see what the Color Challenge was yesterday.
It is this beautiful, elegant combo of gold, silver and white.
 Since I had some time I decided to see what I could come up with.
I pulled out a piece of Stampin Up Brushed Gold and Brushed Silver card stock and also some scraps of Whisper White.
The base of the card is the Brushed Gold and then the next layer is a piece of the Brushed Silver and then more Brushed Gold that I embossed with the Fancy Fan EF. I used a piece of the Brushed Silver and one of the Delicate Designs EF for the piece across the bottom, I trimmed along the scallop edge of the embossing with my paper snips.

I added some Whisper White satin ribbon across where the gold and silver layers came together and tied a pretty bow.
I then embossed and cut out an oval frame using the Designer Frames EF and some of the Brushed Silver card stock.. I used my Sizzix 3-d flower die to cut out the flowers, I rolled them up and added them to the frame using my glue gun. I punched out a few leaves using the Silver card sock and the bird punch and added them around the flowers. I then added some dimesionals to the back of the frame and added it to the base. My sentiment is from the Stampin Up Field Flowers stamp set and I used black stazon on Whisper White card stock. I cut it out and "V" cut the ends and curled it just a bit and tucked it in by the flowers.
I finished it off with some silver pearls in the flower centers and top corners of the card.
This card could be used for a number of different occasions, Wedding, Anniversary, Valentines or just a Thinking of You card. 
Thanks for stopping by today and
