ODBD-Special Anniversary Edition

Good morning!
We have been Celebrating Our Daily Bread Design's 8th Anniversary  
this week, so here is another "Bronze Beauty" using those special Anniversary Edition dies.
As I wrote a few days ago, the color Bronze, when Googled, came up as anywhere from a reddish brown like copper to a chocolate brown metallic color.
 I've done a combination of those colors on my card today!

I used the Winter 2014 paper collection for this card along with some copper (rubbed with oiled Bronze metallic Rub-On), some dark gold, and black for my papers.  I used Perfect pearls, Bronze, for the flower and some mixed fibers.  I also used some gold and brown Prills (US Artquest)
for my flower centers.
ODBD stamps used: Grace's Strength
ODBD paper: Winter Collection 2014

I also made this Gold foiled frame beauty.

ODBD stamps: Grace's Hope, Belles Vignes
ODBD dies: Lavish Layers, Filigree Frames, Double Stitched Rectangles, Rectangles, Flourished Star Pattern

I stamped and embossed the Belles Vignes on white, heat embossed and then ran it through my laminator with gold foil.  The gold foil only sticks to the embossing as it gets warm again when it goes through the laminator.  I then cut my Filigree frame from the gold foiled paper.  The other gold paper used is gold foiled (bought that way), and I used white and black as well.  The bow is gold metal mesh.
I really love the new stamps and dies from the Anniversary sets this year.
They are very decorative and I expect to use them a lot this year!
I think I may experiment with some more foiling as well, that is so fun and really has a rich look.
Oh before you go, today is also the Scavenger Hunt at ODBD.
