MFT Camp Create Bonus: Gather ‘Round the Campfire'

MFT Camp Create Bonus: Gather ‘Round the Campfire' - Awesome Ombre Technique.  Did several backgrounds before satisfied with my watercoloring using the Ombre technique...now what?  
Going through some of my stamps found one of my more detailed stamp sets that I thought would look good with gold heat embossing.  It didn't cover good the first time so did some guess work on lining up the stamp again to catch the area that was missing the deep gold embossing.  Still missing an area I debated on whether I should line it up again but chose to put my layered sentiment over that area.  Added the Gold mist to the entire card and a few gold gems at the upper left-hand corner. 


On the inside of the card the same technique Ombre watercoloring was used on the side border.
