sketchy boards July challenge

thanks sketchy boards for this great sketch and colour with frames  challenge,

At first glance, i noticed the embossing on the white, oh thats so pretty, i should  do something like that, as i have an embosser  and the folders , I dont use very much after wanting to get them for so long,
I embossed  my white card stock , then with my Dew Drop Brilliance, that I bought from scrap matts, i smeared over  the raised section, & punched with Martha Stewart punch

Next to get out stencils Porta craft frame and with the  gold ink i rubbed over the stencil over the white card stock in 2 places,

Around the edges i have used Easy Stitches and in black tomboy pen, gone around the outside  to give a border. i had started with only 2 edges, but it looked unfinished. so did the lot.

I have used a  Kaiser stamp with writing on, using StazOn - jet black ink

In my abundance of stickers i found some border stickers, hearts and ovals frames &  flowers to add to the page.

I have  bought, the other day, some gold fabric flowers from Smart kraft  from Choice. which has little pearls on the back of the flowers,
The little blue flower is from Tracy from My 2 Angels, Tracey has some lovely flowersas well ,as many other trinkets .

The frame, i have also inked with the Dew drop galaxy gold

last year at  a retreat, i received some gold flakes, im not really sure that they do anything for me, but being gold, thought, that they might fill in a patch that looked fairly blank.

with Amy Tangerine Stencils, i  smeared with my finger, some gesso after a few minutes, sprinkled the flakes over it, then shook off the excess,
hope you like my  layout,
thanks for challenge,
until next time
