April Challenge: Script/colors

It's time for another fun monthly challenge at House of Cards
 
This month challenge is...
Create a card with script and/or using this color inspiration:
 
 
 
I went with script:
 
 

 


I embossed this Rose Collage image which already had the script on it on two types of vellum, one with gold splotches on it and one plain piece of vellum.  I was not quite sure what I was going to do next.  Above is what I came up with.  The top card I mounted the image on white and tore and antiqued with gold and added some pattern paper and antiqued an embellishment I had sitting on my table.  I die cut the next piece of vellum along with a background layer, added a gold strip and used a new flower die I had just bought - Spellbinders Blooms three and then rubbed some gold ink on the background. The top card is going in the mail for an April anniversary and the bottom one will be for a co-worker birthday.

I hope you will join our challenge at House of Cards this month.

For some inspiration form the DT members:

So pretty with the script as background for the flower. Your cards are elegant and feel quite vintage with the gold and script. Well done!

Both cards are awesome and elegant- it must be the script, but I like the second just a wee bit better.
