Coral and Gold Wedding / Anniversary Card with Woodgrain and Roses

This week's ColourQ has had me thinking and planning ever since Tuesday, but
I was out of town and couldn't do anything about those ideas until now.
And wouldn't you know--
I still haven't gotten any of those ideas out in paper because
new ones took over.  I got a little carried away, but I think it's OK.
Jay (my card-making buddy) was crafting with me again today
while Robin read us a couple of books.
Thus the sentiment du jour made its way to center-stage.
I just love this sentiment.  It will be perfect as a special anniversary or wedding card.

I added a little bit of embossing inside the white roses to carry the
gold woodgrain background and gold edge-embossing of the tag
over into the embellishments for continuity.

We'll see if I can get around to those original ideas before the ColourQ challenge
deadline hits.  I'll have to monitor how this carpal tunnel thing is going after the weekend.
Coloring has been *really* tough of late,
so I'm trying to avoid having to grasp a small tool like a pencil for extended periods.
We'll just see how it goes, day by day until baby H arrives! :)

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Textured white for base - DCWV; Berry sorbet - Papertrey Ink}
Patterned papers {Metallic Gold Woodgrain - Recollections}
Leaf outline stamp {In Bloom set - Papertrey Ink}
Kraft label tag {Recollections}
Flourish frame die {Spellbinders}
Clear sentiment sticker {The Paper Studio, family collection}
Gold superfine embossing powder {Recollections}
ZIG glue pen (outline label and add gold embossed detail in roses)
White paper roses {Recollections and The Paper Studio}
Burlap bow, gold brads {The Paper Studio}
Champagne / gold gems {Darice}
Floral stem leaf, gingham ribbon, doily, cotton twine {stash}

Finished inside, embossed in gold using blossom outline
and snow/splatters from Altenew.
You can't see it because of the shadows, but the black mat paper
is actually a metallic script over black.

I wish the metallic gold woodgrain texture would show in these photos but... alas.
You will have to use imagination.
