I am always a succor for anything gold, especially when it’s embossed! As you can see I forgot to use my embossing buddy…please don’t do that it makes a huge difference! The inspiration for this card is from a post on Pinterest by Mary Jane Jungst and I had to give it a try, it’s the perfect  congratulation card because it’s so general. This is a super fast, easy elegant card (my favorite kind ).
