September winners post

Please welcome 
Manisha Ayyapath
the winner of the guest designer post for the September 'Anything Goes Challenge'!
Here she is with some fabulous inspiration for the October 'TOUCH OF GOLD' challenge.

Hello Everyone!
Manisha here!
I'm currently a full-time crafter, having quit my job to take care of my little daughter.
This break allowed me to explore the wonders of the crafting world and now I'm totally hooked :)
My interests very widely-cardmaking,scrapbooking, mixed-media and now I'm even into making home decor products. Recently I started a venture where I sell all the handmade items that I make-The Simple Joys Store.

I'm absolutely excited to be guest designing for Paru's Card Making Challenge! and what got me more excited is this month's theme- A TOUCH OF GOLD! I just love adding gold elements in my projects-kind of like a weakness :D
so needless to say I had super fun working on today's projects.
So let's see the card and the tag I made for this challenge.

For this I created a background cut file and had it cut on a matte gold cardstock using my Silhouette Curio. Then I had some fun with Ranger's Alcohol Inks and created some backgrounds. I then die cut the backgrounds using Altenew's floral Fantasy 3D die set.
For the center piece of the flowers and a couple of leaves I used the same gold cardstock to add that touch of gold.
I then adhered the gold frame on the card base and then arranged my die cuts towards the base of the card. To balance out the whole look, I added a sentiment-black on gold and finished off the card with some black ink splatters.

Moving on to the tag. 
I created a simple tag which features some gold heat embossed from Altenew's Adore You stamp set to add that gold element. I used glitter gold embossing power that lends a different charm of its own.
I then colored the flowers with color pencils and markers. The sentiment is heat embossed in black.
I then added a few gold and black splatters as I just love to do that :D 
Attached a brown ribbon to the tag to complete it.

Hope you guys enjoyed my projects and are inspired to play along.
