Thanks..........

Here is today's card..........
Update...I have received an Honourable Mention with this card from CASology...
Thank you so much, absolutely delighted x
I die cut the leaf out of a card that I had sprayed with several of Lindys' stamp gang sprays, 
a couple with mica in them.
I popped on black distress inks around the edges.
I die cut the leaf twice...one in gold mirror card, as the die cuts with an outline.
The sentiment and surround have been embossed with gold EP.

I covered the leaf with glossy accents and left to dry overnight.
The leaf is gloriously shiny but the colours have pretty much blended together, 
as they re-acted to the liquid glossy accents.
I still very much like the effect but wonder why I had used several sprays 
and fussed quite so much on the background!

I popped on the sequins and splattered some gold mica paint to finish.
I popped on this photo as you can perhaps just see a couple of different colours on the leaf?
and this photo shows the glorious effect of the glossy accents...

Fabulous leaf, love that gloss. Well done for leaving it alone overnight, I usually stick my fingers in it as I'm so impatient!
