Gold card

Firstly, I am apologising again for the lack of comments, I hope to be back on track soon.

This weeks challenge at Less is More is Gold, not yellow, but GOLD!.

Here is my offering.  It's a second card for me on the same theme, I was asked to make a card from the department I work in, to make a card for man who got married abroad he'll come back to work married and to a party that quite a few of the staff are attending.  I made one and then decided that it may not be suitable, you know the feeling, will it be just me who likes it?, well I made this card as a second offering if they didn't like the first.  I'll post the first card later in the week if I can.  I decided on the Mr & Mrs rather than to the bride and groom or on your wedding day, as of course they will be married when they receive it.

I used Mandi's colouring suggestion for the gold text (which is "Rage") and printed it out, then printed a second layer wholly in the same gold to layer the text onto. I strung gold twine? around the layers and because the twine and the printing were different colours I used the shiny mirror card in a heart to match it, I embossed it curly to match the text. I thought maybe the Mr & Mrs would stand out more being slightly darker, I hope!

Just realised the layers look on a slant, they are NOT - honest, don't know why it shows as such here.

I am entering these into the following challenges
