The heart and sentiment is by papermania from their confetti collection. I 'inked' it with flitter glue and stamped onto black card, then I added chariots of fire gliding flakes by IndioBlu. I cut a strip of black and gold paper for the side panel and a black card matt for the card blank, everything was edged with the flitter glue and the gliding flakes.
I layered it all up and gave the heart and sentiment a little extra definition by adding foam pads. At the very end I decided to add in two little golden pearls to the top right corner.
The gliding flakes I've used are a lovely gold shade, I realise that the photos kind of have a bleached look to them due to the sun and the flake looks slightly silver?? I thought taking my photos outside would improve them as I think that is my biggest weakness when blogging :(
Anyway, I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
