Gold, sparkle and shine

Another card using my new LOTV sentiment stamp set! I'm so glad I got these stamps, I think they're great for sentiment only cards, which I'm quite hooked on at the moment. The embossing is not uneven - the stamps actually have that distressed look.
I wanted to make a card that really sparkles, so I chose to heat emboss with gold glitter embossing powder. I've used a Spellbinder M-bossabilities folder for the gold paper I've used as background. The paper has a nice shimmer. The gold metallic stars were cut using Sizzix dies, and I also added some gold gems.

This card is for these challenges: 
1) House of Cards - August Sketch + Classic & Elegant
2) Dream Valley Challenges - #63 Monochrome
3) Pile It On - #33 No Designer Paper.
4) Craft Room Challenge - Something New
5) Lexi's Creations - Sparkle & Shine
6) Stamp and Create - Glitter
7) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I would not have thought that I like such a "golden" card, but I do! Beautiful sentiment, I like the distressed look, it adds some interest.
Thanks for joining us at House of Cards,

Gold is not a colour that likes me, but you have used it so beautifully here! Love that new LOTV sentiment too - they're also on my ever growing wishlist! Thanks for joining in the challenge at House of Cards this week!

Very elegant and wonderful. I too love sentiment only but don't seem to do many of them for some reason.
