Putting on the Glitz

I'd like to welcome my new followers and thank them so much for following my blog - big kiss XX  I am still feeling under the weather and can't seem to shake this off but when I look around other people's blogs I don't seem to be alone there seems to be a lot of nasty bugs around at the moment.  My DH things I've caught a computer virus from blogging too much - lolxx  Anyway to cheer myself up I have splashed out the gold embossing powder and slathered it everywhere nothing like a bit of glitz to cheer a girl up!!

Haha see what I mean?  I have used my cute little angel stamp from Judikins which I have had years but really love, I have two of the little darlings - I think they remind me of my son when he was young he looked just like that.  I have used nesties to mount the image of mirri card which I also used for the leaves.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and have gold stickles on as does his halo.  The music is embossed on vellum and is a stamp from LOTV.  The die behind the image is a Magnolia doohickey and I have swiped Versamark and gold EP over.  The bell is a Marianne die and I have put gold EP on that.  The poinsetta is an experiment as it is made from funky foam and cut out with my Marianne die.  I wasn't sure if I could put EP on it thought it might melt or shrivel but it was fine as you can see, the brad in the centre is a pearl one from Wild Orchid but I have put gold EP on that as well!  The sentiment I have had ages from a kit I got from QVC and never really used - mm that sounds familiar!! The paper, again had ages, is from Hot off the Press - too pretty so I have never used them just get them out now and again and look at them!!  I will enter in the following challenges:
