Guilded background card

Hi all
I attended a Demo at the weekend with the very talented Sue Wilson....Thanks Ben and the SET posse for arranging it ..... it was fab ...I was so inspired by Sue's techniques I tried them for myself using some of the creative expressions  guilding flakes,micro beads and double sided sticky sheets.....I used a mask that I already owned ..very similar to the one sue has in her hand here...I used the high low technique with the double sided sticky sheets....[guliding flakes  low and micro beads high ]
The gorfeous flowers are  ARIANNA BLOOMS heartfelt creations stamps and dies set which I embossed with gold wow powder.The bow was a sizzix big die from SU.which I also embossed using a rose background stamp.The 2 frames behind the sentiment are from spellbinders and sweet Dixie. The swirls dies are from memory box. The stamped sentiment is from Lavinia stamps

Thanks Sue for a Fab demo
