Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge 45 - Curved Gold Branches

I had some fun yesterday creating in my craft room for the first time in about 2 weeks!! It felt sooo good to create again!!
Cut the light purple cardstock after drawing a free-hand curve. Adhered it to the dark purple card (this card is 3 1/2" x 6 1/2"). Placed the flower branches on the acrylic block with a curve that followed the curve of the paper (one of the great things about clear stamps - straight images can be curved). Stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with gold. Drew a gold line along the edge of the light purple. Ended off with a straight sentiment - I had considered making it curve too but it was "too much" of a good thing and the stright sentiment really seems to balance all the curves!!
Supplies: stamps-Life, Garden of Life (Papertrey Ink); Cardstock-Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Plum Pudding (Papertrey Ink); Other - gold embossing powder, gold marker.
Thanks for dropping in again today!!

The gold embossing is so elegant and pops beautifully on these fun colors!

The straight sentiment is perfect with the curves, and the colors here are sooooo cool!
