 Hello everyone,

Finally I managed to sort out all my dies apart from a few bigger ones and only that one, didn't make the cut, not matter how many shims I used..and I have more folders arriving from Temu, they are thick and strong and cheaper than anywhere..

Going back a bit do you remember I made this mess...

 and I said "watch this space..", well, the space got filled quite a few times but today is the day I'm using some of it..

I love the big daisy from TH and willing to give any combo a try..

I made a few mistakes, but using black for the background just had to be,
 and then the gold layers had to sorted and I chose wrong the first time and did it again, and finally made it work so you can see the gold..

So, black, my mess, and gold foil on top......nope!

Black, gold foil, my mess.......Yep!

The center had to be fiddle with too, black and gold foil won that round..

Same drama with the leaves as I was running out of my mess card
 and had to squeeze die cuts in there..

Eventually, all was cut out and put together.

At first I had no idea what this photo was of, but then remembered it was of some new papers with a beautiful shimmer and pattern, so hard to get a good picture.

Back here is a bit better, anyway, card bases ready and box ready for covering

Things were glued in place and weighted down as my posh glue had not arrived at this stage.

The box top..

Card and box together..

and standing up..

The card....

Together,,and I really like it..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow with my DT..

Bye bye..

I love the look of these Chrissy, they are pretty and to be honest I prefer the 'bitty' foil look, if that makes sense.xx
