Today was the day I broke out a new set from my box of 2022-23 Catalogue goodies. It was a new bundle, Happiness Abounds. Despite being a photopolymer set - which I avoid if I can - I got it for the gorgeous images and huge range of sentiments in pretty fonts. Some of my team mates at As You See It also made it seem irresistible, so I don't think I'll regret it. 😀
I used the challenge at The Paper Players as inspiration to get started. I've gone down the middle with embossing, floral and rhinestones/pearls/dots.
It was crying out for something interesting to peek out from behind it so I used the Gold and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty DSP. I like that it gives such a textured gold look, yet is remarkably smooth and light weight to use. I gold-embossed the sentiment to add a further touch of opulence.
