Best Wishes

Good afternoon everyone, sorry I haven't been about for a few days.  Unfortunately, I fell and badly hurt myself and this is me just getting myself back together again.

I made this card before my excitement happened, but didn't have time to post it.

I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and one of the dies from Parisian Accents and the fourth smallest die from Gold Labels Four.  I used cream pearlescent card and built up the dies on the panel of the card that I used to start off with.  Once I had completed building everything up, I then stuck on tiny gold coloured crystals around the edges.  To complete the card I put a ribbon and a bow at the bottom of the card with stick pins and a couple of charms to finish it off. (The charms are not on this card, but they were put on it before it was given to the recipient)

I changed the colour of the stick pins from white to gold, this was taken from a tip from Sue over at Particraft.  This was a tip that she gave while she was on Create and Craft on Sunday.  You take your stick pin and rub it all around a Versamark clear pad to ensure that the whole pin head is covered in ink and then you dip it into whatever colour of embossing powder that you want.  I chose gold and I think that it turned out great.  Thanks Sue for the tip.

I apologise that the instructions are not more complete, but the card has now been given away and the batteries have just died on my camera, and my memory just ain't the same anymore.   Not having much luck here with things.

Anyway, I will post the card for you to have a look at, and I hope that you like it.
