Black and Gold Card

Hello crafters,

There are some colour combinations that are just awesome no matter what...one such combination is Black and Gold...
And when black and gold are the ingredients...why not add some roses and red in the mix :D

I started out by making an outline of the roses with a gold gel pen on a black cardstock. I have used a rose stencil stencil for this.
Once the outline was done...I painted the flowers and leaves with my new golden acrylic colour (I am not a good painter so I hardly own any paints )...




Next I propped this piece on a red cardstock which was put on a gold cardstock...
The golden paper is actually a part of a wedding invitation.
Then I mounted the whole thing on the card base...

Here is a closer look at the golden roses and paper...
(I had a hard time capturing the golden colour)





I didn't add any sentiment as I don't know what occasion I want to associate it with...
It can be a Valentine/Date card or an Anniversary Card or even a Birthday card...but it surely does give a romantic vibe to me :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
