Easel With the Congratulations

Well I really went for the sparkle with this anniversary card I made for friends. Black glitter card, dufex, holographic card and gems. I have to admit to being rather pleased with how it turned out, pix don't do it just can't get the sparklie bits to show properly can you. I'm hoping they would have got it today, and even then it's a day late.....drat holiday postal service lol. I suppose I could have made it early and got it to them before the break...but that was never going to happen was it now lol.

My receipe...

All cardstock - Stash 
Mini gems - Craft Creations
Stickers - Craft Creations, Imag-e-nation
Nestie - Label 8
Decoupage image - Dufex
Other embellies - Stash
The Love that Put it Together - All My Own

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges :-
Anything Challenge ... The Letter C
Paper Sundaes ... Cut it out
Bunny Zoe's Crafts ... Sparkle and Shine
Woodware USA Clear Stamps ... Anything Goes
Fresh Brewed Designs ... Celebrate
The Pixie Cottage... Celebration
Simon Say Stamp...Time to Celebrate
Stamp Insanity ... Sparkle

A few scanned pix to make up for the bad photograph....

The 'banners' were made by drawing around a couple the nestie shapes, the tiniest for the ends and a bigger one to get the length. Outlined with sliver stickers and the congrats banner embellished with a couple of teeny tiny flower gems. Dufex decoupage is great to shape, and so easy, you can curve it with your fingers or for greater depth, with the handle of your scissors. You do have to be very careful with it as the etching is easily marked by a finger nail or the scissors. ...worth the care though. If you've never tried dufex, there is some among my candy which you can find here.

 As you can see the base as well as the card front is glitter card.

 Another greeting banner and an embellishment banner too. The ribbon was coloured with a cheap acetate pen, the flower sequin was coloured from underneath so it would keep the shimmery mother of pearl look (I know you can't see that!!) A paper poppy with a flower gem to finish off.

Please feel free to stay around and snag any of my freebies you like before you go.
