A guilded Rose

Hi all

I did  a demo at the local Paul sartori charity shop [in their café on the top floor] on behalf of Set  ...eek it was busy... I got a shock at how many turned up I lost count at 38....so a massive THANK YOU to everyone who attended  I hope you all enjoyed it and I hope to see you there again at my next demo.A special Thanks  to Debby and her Paul Sartori  café staff for keeping us all supplied with fab tea  and coffee. That's me  with the bob haircut in the orange under the pics on the back wall !!!
Here is a card that featured as part of my demo last Friday ...It was a demo inspired by creative expression products,so I used the following on this card  , guilding flakes, a large background stamp stamped on acetate ,brads, the classic rose die which I guilded with gold flake . the open leaves die .labels stamp set embossed with clear powder.
I also used nestability radiant rectangles dies and a nesty label die .The thanks stamp is from SU and is embossed with wow gold powder....
