Golden Greetings

Take one color challenge - Less is More's gold challenge - add a new technique thanks to Diana at DL.ART and you have the above card. 

Edited:  I saw this techinque on Diana's blog and figured out how she did it myself but in reading another blog that I follow, this tutorial from PTI was mentioned.  It gives you a little more information.
I wanted to try the technique so I took a scrap piece of white paper and dry embosssed it with the Spots folder.  I used a Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge stamp and with VersaMark stamped over the embossed paper.  I think I got a little carried away.  It would work better with a background stamp or maybe a lighter touch.  I heat embossed with gold powder.  I liked the scrap so well, I made it the centerpiece of the card.  I layered it on gold shiny paper and popped it on the white A2 card base.  The sentiment stamp is from TPC Studion (something I picked up on sale at JoAnn's a while ago.)  It is also heat embossed with gold, layered and popped.  I'm thinking a 50th birthday or wedding anniversary.  What do you think?
