AAA Cards Challenge - It's all about GOLD

 I can't even think of a more fun challenge for the New Year then to use GOLD.  It seems everything is about Gold this holiday season and so be sure to pull out your Gold accents and give the AAA Cards challenge a try.
 I wanted to use a new stamp set from PaperTrey, Inc that I bought recently so I stamped the leaves and embossed them with gold embossing powder.  
Next I simply played with several colors of inks to create a watercolor background.  I kept playing with it and adding more colors until I liked it, then I left it to dry. I just love what happens when it dries! I also used some Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine and a little Gold dot piece of chipboard.
Be sure to play along at AAA Cards.

My card also fits the Runway Inspired challenge.
I am also submitting this to the Simon Says challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
