Many, many thanks

We were treated to a fabulous meal last night in celebration of my friend's 50th birthday. Her husband insisted on paying for us all and it was superb! This is just to let him know how much we enjoyed ourselves and how pleased we were to share in the celebrations. The restaurant was one I'd never been to previously, but we will certainly be going there again.
This image was created with a clear stamp from Personal Impressions which I bought in Bury St Edmunds when I was staying with my son. I used Stamp 'n' Bond to add the gilding flakes and I love the variation of tone it gives. The Hero Arts sentiment was simply heat embossed in gold.

  15. My oh my there's sooooo much to admire on this Blog. This card is knock-your-socks-off gorgeous.

    Alcohol inks ...... I've not seen them used before. What do they do for you that other inks don't do?
