Going for gold

Hi Crafters, Hope your having a relaxing Saturday. I'm looking forward to a lovely meal tonight with friends, so doing a quick post before I go and make myself beautiful, I treated myself to something nice to wear for the occasion, makes a change buying myself clothes rather than craft goodies, infact, I did buy some card but surely that doesn't count lol. This is a little card i made for a friends birthday, its the first time I've used gilding flakes and flitterglu and I'm chuffed with the results. The stamp I've used is called Ella Bella from Indigoblu, love it!
The papers I've used are from Stampin Up, they go lovely with the gilding flakes as there is gold through the papers, I also gilded over the punched flower and used a little brad for the centre also from Stampin Up.

Well thats it for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll catch up with you all tomorrow x.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Celebrations
Stamptacular Sunday ~ Spring Bling
Craft your passion ~ Lots of Texture
The Crazy Challenge ~ Feminine/ Girly
Papertake Weekly ~ Anything Goes
Lets Craft and Create ~ Special Occasion
Craft us Crazy ~ Fav stamp
