Three of a kind with bling


I think this is quite a clean looking card....for me anyway. Not exactly clean and simple of course, but less busy than usual. The papers I used are a kind of paper ribbon that I cut into thin strips, the silivery paper at the centre is a bit of old wrapping paper....yes I'm one of those who open my parcels very carefully and knowing how many avid re-cycler s are out there I'm not afraid to say it lol.  

The faceted stones at the centres are clear but the others are all a set of three of one of the iris colours (complicated sentence), only the pink showing up though.  My appature card is an ultra slim (not a word Dorcas!!) DL and is part of a cheap bulk buy from years ago. Every thing is from stash. 

Just a few Challenges for this one...
OLLCB - Three of a Kind
Crafty Hos' - No Designer Papers
CES Challenge - Bold and Bright

I love your colors and of course the bling. Is this a long card? I can't quite see where the edges are. I've done a small quilt using this type of folding. Hugs, dj
