Sunday Modern Medley Meets retro On Film Framelits

A wet and rainy Sunday calls for some gold foil papers, Framelits and Modern Medley 
Designer series paper ( DSP).
When I saw that the final April weekly special contained the Modern Medley papers I thought of putting a few patterns with gold and black for some added contrast and bling.
The "on Film" Framelits make a gorgeous embossed texture as well as die cutting using the Bigshot machine.

Card Recipe:
Cardstock - Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black
Ribbon - Primrose Petal stitched grosgrain.
DSP - Modern Medley 
Gold Foil and gold embossed vellum
On Film Framelits
Flower and butterfly punches
Pewter Embossing Powder, whisper white craft ink.
Happy Birthday stamp from "Timeless Talk".
I am placing my next order on Tuesday 29th April,

By the Tide

Todays card is kind of beach themed... Colours, stamps and textures.
I particularly like the pool party Coredinations cardstock. You can sand the surface and reveal the whiter core of the card. I felt the scalloped embossing folder gave me a wavy ocean like feel to the background.
Sticking with the Coastal cabana ink colour and sandy "crumb cake" ink continues the tidal shore theme.
Finally I finished the card with a fussy cut shell and sea horse from the "By The Tide" stamp set and a few drops of Dazzling details glitter.
Drop by tomorrow for some weekly Specials starting each Wednesday during April.
