A little bit of Glitz

What a beautiful day we have had today lovely sunlight with a slight breeze just wonderful.


I have been playing around with a sketch I saw on the Clean and Simple web site – click here to have a look.


Unfortunately the link closed before I could link my card but when I saw the sketch I just knew I wanted to use the Medallion background stamp as the larger image on the card.


I used the Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the Medallion image for a little extra ‘bling’ but I also used a Rhinestone on the butterfly!


I thought the sentiment from the Elements of Style stamp set was a nice addition and I layered this on some Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon.


I used one of the Tags from the Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die Set and punched them out on Very Vanilla and Pretty in Pink cardstock. 


The Very Vanilla tag has been trimmed so you get see the edge of the Pretty in Pink cardstock underneath.


I like the card, at first I thought it was too dark but the card is growing on me.

I think the colours work well together. And I especially like the effect of just one half of the doily.
