Clarity - blast from the past challenge

I had a sheet of paper that I had cut out leaves from and I just didn't want to throw it away! So I decided to put some of the die cuts back into the sheet and make it the background. I rubbed some gilding wax onto the leaf veins and around the edges.

I love this Clarity stamp - I used it onto a double sided sticky sheet and acetate with gilding flakes, finishing with another scrap of the paper and a Clarity word stamp.

I'm entering this into the Clarity monthly challenge which this time is Blast from the Past - this is not the oldest Clarity stamp I have, but I do use it a lot.

As I have used snippets I'm also going to the snippet playground with this make.

A beautiful creation - it's like looking out of the window seeing the autumnal scenery that Mother Nature has created.
Many thanks for joining in with us again this month, and good luck in the prize draw x

Fabulous card! Love the stamp you used for the background trees and the gilding flakes reminded me that it's ages since I used mine! Lovely to see you in the Playground Lynn.
