Gilding Flakes and Sparkle

Good afternoon.

I'm back again with my second post for today - please scroll down or click here for my DT post for
Cutie Pies.
So as my DH is away I've been keeping busy and getting ahead with some Christmas makes. I recently treated myself to some gorgeous Indigo Blu goodies and here's a card I made using a couple of stamps.

Card Ingredients:
Images: Indigo Blu 'Baubles Flourish' and 'Snowman Dinkie'
Gilding Flakes: Indigo Blu 'Autumn Blaze'
Festive Berries Distress Ink
Glamour Dust
Adhesive Gems from stash
Sentiment: Kaisercraft

Challenges I would like to enter:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
52 CCT - Colour Challenge - Red White and Kraft
Winter Wonderland - Frosty the Snowman
Crafter's Cafe - No Designer Paper

Unfortunately my MiL is still in hospital - with stomach problems - which means my DH won't be here in the morning for Jack's birthday :o(
Think I'll make his favourite breakfast - pancakes - and keep my fingers crossed John gets back in time for his birthday tea - hoping to go out with Aaron, Kerry and Oliver to a restaurant of Jack's choice.

Anyway - thanks for popping by (again) today.
Enjoy your evening - think mine will be spent in my little crafty haven :o)

I absolutely love that gilding effect! How does it work? Do you have to put some kind of glue on the stamps instead of ink?
