CASology Challenge # 103

I LOVE making cards but boy it can be frustrating some times. I had an idea for a card but do you think I could make it work??!! I spent 2 hrs and countless attempts at stamping and embossing but no go. I gave up and put it all away and watched tv but couldn't stop thinking about it. Will have another go today. But....
the cue word at the CASology Challenge is 'Glow' and I had an immediate idea about my favourite stamps.
Ta Da! This idea actually worked thank goodness. I absolutely love my 'Painted Flowers' set from Altenew and like to play around with it. There are 3 different stamp layers to this flower and usually the last one is in black but thought what about embossed gold??? I love how it turned out and managed to get the gold to 'glow' a bit in the sun. 

The sentiment is also from Altenew 'Sohcahtoa'. They are releasing a whole lot of new stamp sets soon and the sneak peeks look amazing. I better start saving.....

I'm also going to link this to the challenge at CAS on Sunday #37 where their theme is 'One Layer Wonder'. This is my second card.

Raining here today and still have four children instead of two but they all play together so well, I hardly see them....except when they are hungry. I feel more like a waiter than a mum sometimes.......

Take care
