Happy Wednesday!!!!
 I have reached 300 followers!!!!!  ooooh , have to put on my thinking hat and figure out how to celebrate!!!!
Today I am showing you a card using Gilding Flakes!! If you never heard of them they are like foil, they are small pieces and are very light. 
 
I know that doesn't explain too much so once again I am turning you over to the very person I admire and has learned majority of my skills...
The lovely Christina from Flowers Ribbons And Pearls.
 
Here are two videos that Christina has put together, 
 The first one is how to do a Mosaic Card using Gilding Flakes
Go HERE
 
And the next one is Christina's brand new video posted 3 days ago and already has almost a thousand views!!!
Its the Gilded Bird Cage and it is brilliant!!!!
Go HERE
 
 
I have to show you the card that Christina made, Look at that bird cage, isn't it stunning! Don't underestimate these flakes, there are so many ways  you can use them.
 
 
 
 
For my card I used Paper Made Kit for Feburary, March's kit should be here soon, eeeek!!!
 
I also used gilding flakes for the circle punch outs on the spaces between the ribbon.
 

 The flowers are taken from the package itself, lol, not wasting anything!!! Just love this kit
(well not that I would have to mention that)
 
 
Here is an angle shot to show off the shine
 

Now can you see  the flakes??




Thank you for visiting and be sure to pass on some bloggy love to Christina by visiting the link I provided above!!!

Have a terrific day!!!!

The card is fabulous and the gilding flakes look really good. The flakes are a bit fly away so don't use them near an open window.... and be careful how you sneeze near them too ... I have a couple more videos to make on how to use them to get the most from your purchase .... coming soon xxx
