Popping by with a quick card for the current CASology Challenge with the Cue Card - Metal.  I wasn't very imaginative and just went with gold elements:

I wanted to make a card with my new stamps from Winnie and Walter - love that font!  I gold embossed a honeycomb heart from Simon Says Stamp on vellum and added some stitching with gold thread.  I sponged gold ink through a Memory Box stencil on each corner of the card base to provide a bit of interest.
The stitching means that I can play along one more time with Virginia's View Challenge!
While I am here I can also share another card that I have made inspired by the Watercolour Class for Cardmaker - specifically Day 3/4 Watercolour Stamping. 
I used distress markers on the Hero Arts palm stamp and spritzed generously with water.  Finished with a large sentiment from HA - I can't remember which set it comes from!
I hope you like them - thanks for stopping by!
