Gilding Flake Crazy!

It was our 9th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and this is the card I made for Darren, my husband, I went a bit crazy with the Gilding Flakes!!


The stamp is from a tree set by Creative Expressions, the Hexagon's are a Sissix die set, the Gilding Flakes are Lancashire Rose by Indigoblu and the letters and numbers are Cuttlebug dies  The photo doesn't do the Flake justice, they shine amazingly and the colours are gorgeous!  We didn't go out to celebrate as Darren is poorly at the moment but we did have a yummy Indian takeway.  There was so much and we ate the lot!!  I hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it.  Take Care. Christine xx

Glad you had a good day even though Darren is not up to it still. Indian sounds yummy..I'm on that diet again so the thought of a curry makes my mouth water...better than rice crakers that's for sure!! xx Ju
