Crystal Anniversary

As we've been away for 3 days this weekend, I lost out on my normal crafting day this Saturday and thought I'd struggle to catch up on a lot of the challenges I wanted to play in, however it one of those fortunate coincidences that sometimes occur in crafting, I can combine some of the challenges I play in.

Firstly this week's Less is More challenge is looking for something shiny http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/week-72-theme.html and CASual Friday are looking for cards with acetate or vellum  http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/cfc57.html   Well, one of the reasons for the party we travelled to this weekend was our friends 15th Wedding Anniversary - which is Crystal - well that's shiny and the card I made them featured a glitter embossed vellum flower with a crystal centre.  I also thought I could add a 3rd and final challenge - this week the Paper Players are celebrating their 100th challenge by asking you to look back and select any of their former challenges
http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/exciting-newswelcome-to-our-100th.html  So I selected challenge No 33 - "Love is in the Air"   This is the card we gave to our friends.



The flower is made up of two different sized floral stamps by stamps by Chloe and a matching leaf sprig - all glitter embossed on vellum and fussy cut.  I dry embossed a strip of white card with a spellbinders folder and adhered it to a strip of white glitter card.  The sentiment is by Waltzingmouse and stamped in silver with the addition of some tiny gems for extra shine and sparkle.
