W&W WCMD Gold challenge w/Lydia

Another of the challenges for WCMD with Winnie and Walter is a 
Gold or Metallics challenge with Lydia Evans.  I adore all of her posts and have created a card using 4 different gold elements.

I gold heat embossed my Magenta Poinsettia stamp, water coloured with Gansai Tambi paints, heat embossed my SSS NBUS sentiment in gold, used a strip of gold crackle pattern vellum and a gold strip of metallic foil card stock.  The last gold element was to put speckles of gold paint (a first for me) to finish it off!
I admit, I struggled with what challenge to put this up for, as I used Gayatri's sketch and I also created with water colour, Vanessa's challenge.  I hope those W&W goodies arrive today!  I didn't realize that they were just down the road from me...they are 90 miles away in San Antonio!  Where have I been?

I am also adding this SSS WCMD challenge
