2S4Y LAURA'S SKETCH 8

I have realised again today, just how hard it can be to photograph certain things, even with my fabby new camera! One of those hard to capture things is gold embossing powder!! and Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink! However i've done the best i can with this photo, you won't beleive how many i actually took to get a half decent one! :)
This design is for Laura's sketch 8 over at 2S4Y. The acrylic stamps i've used are from HOTP and Anna Griffin, and i got in a bit of a pickle trying to position them all on the block, as they are all seperate little ones! The background card has been stamped with Brilliance and a tiny dot stamp, but again it just doesn't show very well :(
The leafy background paper is from Paper Adventures which i've had for an age!! the gems are Kanban and the gold organza is from my ever growing stash!! :)

Thanks for popping by today, i'll see you soon :)Edited to add:- Another picture! not sure if it's better or worse!!!
