Golden Delight

Good morning.
I hope you can forgive me for posting another altered notebook so soon - if you haven't seen the first one it is here but I bought 2 and needed another one as a Christmas present so here it is:

I have used the themes at Totally Tilda, Die Cut Dreams and Just Magnolia for the inspiration.
Totally Tilda are looking for Glitz & Gold, Die Cut Dreams want anything but a card and Just Magnolia want White Plus 1
I have used a gorgeous speciality paper from a K&Co 12x12 pad - another one I have had for some time that I used 'stroked' lol!!!
The darling Tilda was a stamp I won last year at Friday Sketchers and I have used a gold metallic Brilliance ink pad to colour her gown with - IRL it has a lovely pearlescent sheen but I can't seem to capture it on the photo - sorry! I also used PM's to colour the rest of Tilda and some scrummy Gold Glamour Dust for her wings and stars.
Here is a close up of the delicious Wild Orchid flowers and the leaves which were die cut from a satin finish mirror card using a Spellbinders die:

They have had the stickles treatment to add extra sparkle.
To finish it all off a length of sparkly gold ribbon (from my local cake shop) and some gold letters from stash.

I can hardly bring myself to talk about the results of the weekend TV - suffice to say that when that mad woman was voted to do another challenge - I voted with the remote and switched her off and I have now boycott the programme altogether!!!

Hope you all had a fab weekend and here's to a great week.
Thanks for popping over.
