TCP Tuesday Challenge {go for the Gold}

I am really in love with using soft, pale pinks with gold. I did it again on this card for the TCP Tuesday Challenge-Go for Gold. 

I made this girly birthday card to show off my gold hearts on the vellum circle and a row of Gold sequin trim to fit the challenge. 
I started by stamping this sweet bear,  At Your Service, on x-press it blending cardstock. I then colored her up with my Copic markers. 

I added the gifty to her plate to create the customized birthday card. The oval behind her is from Framed Up

Here is a close up of the pretty vellum with my sentiment stamped over top. I used black Archival ink.. Always be sure to set your stamped vellum piece aside to dry before you handle it to avoid smearing. 

I finished off the card with a gorgeous seam binding ribbon. This is Rose color.  It was the perfect girly detail to complete this birthday card. 

Check out the challenge over on the TCP blog or in the TCP Forum on SCS.
