2020 Stash Party #4 - Happy Birthday - Dusty Rose

Hello Crafty Makers!
Today's post is just a quick one.  I made this card simply to use up some of the paper scraps on my work table. 
Dusty Rose 
I do not use a lot of gold on my cards. I don't even know why I purchased the flowered gold paper used in the project. It is, however, quite pretty. I love the color of the paper.  It reminds me of a spool of ribbon I once had that was called "Dusty Rose." A ribbon I have never been able to find again.
The roses are the same dusty pink as the paper and I thought they would combine for an elegant birthday card.
 I have found so many fun supplies while digging through my stash, like the three little flat back baby bling.  I have also had the heart die for a while but this is the first time I have used it.
 Several years ago, WRMK introduced its "Next Level" embossing folders.  The EFs make deep impressions and create a more defined background.  I used the hearts folder for this project.
I purchased practically all of the Spellbinders™ "Edgeabilities®"  dies when they were first introduced.  I think I may have two of them.  When I explored my die collection, I found most of these unused.  I made use of two of them to create the borders that frame my roses.

When I started my crafting diet in 2018, I didn't think I would be able to resist the temptation to purchase the "hottest" new die or stamps.  I was surprised by just how easy it was.  We are twenty-three days into 2020 and I have made glue and tape purchases but I have avoided adding to an already mostly neglected stamp and die collection.  I have more money in my pocket and more peace of mind.
Stuff I Used:
American Crafts - Bontanique Foil Accents Paper
Embossing Folder - WRMK - Next Level - Dotted (2 Folders Dots and Hearts)
Want2Scrap Brown Pearls - Adhesive Back
