Papertrey Ink June 2013 Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends!  I'm participating in today's Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop!  Today the challenge is to add a touch of gold.  I tried a couple of things before I came up with my final card.
So here's what I came up with.  I took inspiration from a couple of the pictures in the graphic.  I chose the Polka Dot Basics stamp set to emboss the gold dots.   I paired it with this chevron paper from PB&J by Basic Grey.  It looks black, but it's actually a dark navy blue.  The butterfly was cut with the Butterfly Kisses die and then stamped with the coordinating image from the same set in Versamark and embossed in gold.  I added some gold bling for its body and more gold by added the ribbon.  The sentiment is from Vintage Picnic and was stamped and embossed in gold onto a flag die from WPlus9.  All this gold made me dizzy!
 
  I'm on day 2 of my summer vacation and it is so nice to wake to the birds chirping rather than an alarm clock!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Love, love, love you take on the hop! I didn't get to create this month, but knew if I did I would have used my Polka Dot basics set as a starting place. You really did a great job pairing this with your chevron paper and embellishing perfectly with the butterfly and ribbon. Very nice work!
