pretty gilding flakes

I really do wish you could get the full effect of this card, its really hard to catch the light right to see the full effect of the gilding flakes.
For my card i started by adding ink with a brayer and splodge mat, to make my base then i stamped the tree with flitter glu and added morris dance gilding flakes. Next it was time to add randomly stamped flora and fauna stamps in various coloured adirondack ink,the bird house was stamped onto patterned paper and then stickled,  i matted it onto blue the burgundy which i then added a little decoration with a white posca pen, as always ive added lots of stickles, and i will go on to add the personal greeting with a little more embellishment later as i dont want it to be known who its for.

Ive woken up to a very frosty morning and my plans were to stay indoors and craft all day but i fear i need to have a little retail therapy :) Its my Dads 70th birthday next month so we need to start making preparations for a celebration, so i see lots of party paraphernalia on my shopping list
