Masculine Card with Gold

Today, I'm playing along with 2 more challenges.  Totally Paper Crafts has a challenge theme of male cards.   Lots of awesome colored images for that challenge.  The second challenge is over at Card Crafter's Circle and the theme is gold/pot of gold. 

This is a super simple monochromatic card.  I used PTI Fine Linen for the base card and second layer, Kraft cardstock for the leaf and some metallic gold paper. 
The leaf is a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage die.  I added some hemp cord to tie in with the kraft cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped with metallic gold Encore! ink.  This is a great ink if you are looking for metallic gold.

Thanks for stopping by...
