Fleur de Lis Anniversary

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! We're still in the midst of an outrageous heat wave. We've lived in this area a long time and this the longest, earliest, heat spell we've experienced. Thank goodness there's been a little relief in the thunderstorms almost every afternoon. Otherwise, I think we'd just melt or burst into flames! 

Today I'm showing a really pretty Fleur de Lis image. It just looks elegant to me so that's the direction I went. I black embossed it onto a light metallic gold card stock and fussy cut it. I used a metallic gold Sharpie to add a little bit of shading to the image. It was added to a black die cut oval and another gold fancy die cut layer.
The black background was made by spritzing a Fleur de Lis embossing folder w/ gold shimmer spray then placing the black card stock inside & embossing. It's so hard for the camera to capture, but all the specks are actually shimmery gold and very pretty in real life! The greeting was gold embossed & I fussy cut it into a flag shape to attach on top.
This is a look at the inside using the leftover narrow frame and another fleur de lis I didn't use on the front.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! If you haven't, please check out the DRS Thursday Challenge..this week, use Stars on your project!
