AEIHeartU Golds and Watercolors

 I'm feeling extra trendy with this card.  Something my fashion lacks big time but that's another story.
 I started by thinking of gold "yummy", then embossing gold "ooh", then watercolors "ahh"!
Loving the combination of the soft watercolors with the earthy golds.
I saw Avery Elle's AEIHeartU challenge #10 and I had to play.  GOLD it's everywhere and oh so pretty!
 One would think it comes in just one shade, but not on this card.  I used a gold embossing for the top image that gives off a more earthy darker hue.  Then stamped the sentiment and tiny leaves in a softer more yellow gold.  Both different but both lovely!
 (All stamps from Avery Elle, Gold ink Brilliance in "Galaxy Gold", Gold embossing powder is a generic from the craft store, Watercolors from Crayola)
