A Friendship grows forever....

Good day everyone

I just love trying something new,

They received the Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes and I could not wait to try it.


They have several color combos,  I used Autumn leaves.  
My papers are all white cardstock.
Background is Spellbinders M Bossabilities embossing folder call Bricks and Bark.


I used Memory Box Wildflower Corner die, and Sentiment is a Copper Peel-Off.


I love how this card came together and I have so many cool idea's with other dies to try out.
