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.
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.
