colourQ #207, CAS(E) this Sketch #45 and All that Glitters is Gold

IMG_2432

Happy Tuesday and time for this week's colourQ challenge.
Arielle has done it again with a fabulous colour palette:




Combining challenges by die cutting feathers in this weeks colours, embossing with gold for the Moxie Fab World All that Glitters is Gold Challenge and using this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.  I wish the photograph turned out a bit better, but the feather embossed with gold is just gorgeous. 

Do you have a secret for taking good photos of embossing?

What a pretty card, and great way to use those colors. You combined so many challenges and really knocked them all out of the park. I always forget how stunning metallic embossing can be. Thanks for reminding me.

Nope, no suggestions. Photographing embossing is a pain in the butt! LOL! Your embossed feathers look amazing though. I just got that set and need to get it inky! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

LOVE the gold embossing on those colorful cardstocks, Tracey! Don't you just adore these feathers?! I'm struggling with getting color-rich photos right now. I think it's just the gloomy weather we're having, but I always seem to go through this with the changing seasons. Embossing is difficult to bring justice to with the camera, though. Sigh.

This card is a stunner! Colors, gold embossing, die cuts, love it all!
I cross fingers, and say a silent prayer when I take ANY photo. And it sometimes works!
