Anniversary flourish

Hi everyone! Here is my take on two challenges today. Less is More is only layer wee with a flourish and Just Us Girls, it's trend week and they want metals or metallics.

I have several flourish stamps, but couldn't decide which on to work with. My mojo was not in gear at first. I had a lot of cool ideas, I was just having a hard time executing those ideas.

Finally decided on a old retired Angel Company swirl stamp. Stamped it in Versamark and then used gold embossing powder and heat embossed.

Anniversary sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink.

I tried to get a good picture that showed off the gold embossing, but was only successful at showing off the top portion. Oh, well. In real life it's very pretty.

Thanks for stopping by!
