Less Is More is Gold!

Hi All,

I am having such a busy week!   Made this card on Sunday, thought it would suit LIM as the theme is Leaves this week,   but haven't had a chance to upload until now and even now I'm dashing - off to help my Son move home!
I recently bought some Gilding flakes and Flitter Glu - and this was my first (almost - I'm not showing that one).  The Leafy Tree is an old one from Elisive Images (now Chocolate Baroque), and I have stamped using the Flakes.  The sentiment is Hero Arts. 

This will probably  be my last post, apart from my (hopefully) scheduled post for FSC on Sunday,   as we are off on holiday on Sunday for a couple of weeks of sunshine. I am not much of a sun worshiper as I hate to be too hot, but I do enjoy winter sunshine.

Thats it for now, but pleas pop back on Sunday for the new Challenge at FSC.

Thanks for looking

Avril xx

Super-stylish and elegant Avril :) I have never used gilding flakes (I would get them everywhere! lol) they look so effective though.

This is a great image and I love the style of the sentiment.

Beautifully put together. Gilding is something I've not tried - yet, something else I must have a go at doing! Have a good holiday, lucky you!
