A Spoonfull of Bling!!!

Sparkle and Bling is the theme this week at A Spoonfull of Sugar.

Well my Nan is 85 on Saturday so I made this card for her. She likes a bit of sparkle - Bless!It's not my usual style (well if I have a style really - LOL!!).

I made a gatefold card - haven't made one for ages and I forgot how nice it is to make one.I added flourishes with Versa Fine ink and added little gems to them.
The flower is stamped onto this gorgeous vellum (only had a wee piece left) and embossed in gold then cut out. I layered it onto a gold doily and die cut circle

The inside is full of Nan things!!! - little die cut flower sticker and prima flowers.
