Art Deco

 I made this card for a colleague and good friend of mine, who has taken voluntary redundancy from our department. Carol just loves all things Art Deco and Bling, so I'm pretty sure that she will like this card. Because lots of people want to sign it I made it as an A4 card which was a challenge in itself, 6 x6 is soo much easier.
The image is from Lilac Lemon designs which is one of a set that I have had for ages and never got round to inking, I coloured the image with my favourite copic colours.
The swirls are also from a set that I have had forever but I cant remember where from. The swirls were embossed in silver for added bling.
The die cut swirls were cut with my Robo craft.
Plenty of swarovski gems were added and silver mirri card for backing and ribbon coloured with matching green copics to join the card.

I added fluffy stuff and diamond glitter for the stole, the piccies dont show just how much this card sparkles though.

  3. Oh my this card is stunning and I'm sure that you work friend is going to flip over it. Totally liking your creative fan shape that you have done as your background behind the stamp and with the added layer of the embossed scroll work on it, it really does look perfect. Gorgeous stamp and your colours are so soft and pretty. *Hugs*
