That carnation again

You may remember the other day I used a carnation stamp but felt it would have looked better  stamped in gold on a dark background instead of being used as an outline to colour.

Well here it is, and I'm much happier with the result:



 There's a joint challenge at AAA Cards and Less is More this fortnight, the theme being a one layer card with a coloured base, so I am joining in with this card.

and I am also sharing with The Flower Challenge - Embossing heat/dry
