The Midas Touch!!

Hi All
        Here I am again with another Tilda card for a couple more Challenges.
I was let loose with one of my first introductions into the crafting world on this card! A HEATGUN!! I haven't used it for ages and I got a little carried away!!LOL. Years ago, I always edged my card with Gold Embossing powder. I used loads of the stuff!! So I got back to basics with this card. I even edged the roses with it too!!

For the tag I used Gold Leafing for the Merry Christmas Text. At last ive purchased something that works. Ive always struggled with Gold Leafing, as all the glues Ive tried haven't worked and believe me Ive tried them all, from glue pads to Stamp 'n' Bond!!:(  Until now!!! :)))
And what's more, the funny thing is, it's been under my nose for the past 8 years!! What I'm waffling on about is the Perfect Paper Duo Adhesive by Artquest. It wasnt until a couple of weeks ago, I went on a US Artquest workshop with Jill and we used it. Fantastic stuff or what!! I've got the 'Midas' bug now!! LOL
Tilda is painted with Distress inks and Ive also gone over with a Gold Stardust pen, so she is very glittery
Challenges Im entering are

Thankyou all for looking
Lots of Love
Debbie xxx
