Gold birthday

In an effort to use some of my not-so-recent purchases I've been making a few easy cards again today. I'm still not feeling too good, so it's just right to do a bit of crafting, but nothing that takes too much effort.

So this uses a ready gold foiled card blank. Once again I've stamped the Clarity Stamp sentiment with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold powder. A few added gems and a card was done. Why is it that the gems look a different gold on the photo?

This is for:

CASology 2: happy
One layer Wednesday 96: birthday blings
Cutie pie 22: glitter and bling
Paper pretties Monday challenge: embossing
Paper pretties Wednesday 215: bling it on
Use it Tuesday 35: emboss it
Frosted fabulous Friday: stamping
Divas by design 44: anything goes
The paper shelter 73: anything goes
Perfect sentiments 41: anything goes
Simon says stamps and show: no rules
Crazy amigo: free theme
Make it Monday 98
Inspire me Fridays 67
52 card pick up week 28
