Golden Years of Railroading

I just got some grand new stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms and some simply fabulous papers by Paper Temptress. I've finally had a moment to breathe so I had some time to stamp!

In a turn of events for me, I actually started with my paper selection for this creation. I wanted to use this Antique Gold paper from Paper Temptress sooo badly, but hadn't a clue what I was going to do. My frantic schedule the last 2 weeks is taking it's toll.

I started to do word association - golden years, golden spike, railroad - and then it hit me! I just got a wonderful railroad stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. Aha! Now, what?

I went completely crazy and decided to make the most of the paper and emboss the image right onto this beautiful color! It worked out quite well I think.
