The Twenties goes Funky

Although I've already shown a funky fold card, this is in fact the first one I made. It was a die cut pyramage kit, given to me as a gift and came with an A5 matching card. Not being in the mood for plain old A5 cards I cut it up and used it as the background. The first matting layer, which looks white, is a lovely matt Silver cardstock. As the colour challenge is Black, Silver and White, I added the white bow, roses, pearl trim and button...don't you just love fancy buttons. There are one or two of the tiniest, tiny clear gems dotted about. I've only a few of these and using them very miserly. The sentiment tag came with the card and simply says Just for You.....so an Any Occasion card - can never have too many of those lying about can you. 

 The usual really awful photograph so you have a vague idea of it standing up.

 ....and some close ups of the fancy bits

Yeah, it's working! And what an awesome card! Wow! I love black and white (I didn't know it was silver, but it's beautiful), and the embellishments you used just pop. If you look on my last card there are several challenges that this would also qualify for, and even if you don't win the random challenge, I would think it would definitely be picked as a top three or whatever they have. Hugs, dj
