Use Silver for Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Thursday again already and this week at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog we have a 'Silver' theme in honour of our lovely Rainbow Lady's forthcoming wedding anniversary. I've made one of those camera shy cards - acetate and gilding flakes just don't like having their photo taken lol.

I've used one of Joanna Sheen's silhouette stamps for this card. I stamped the image on acetate and embossed with black detail ep, then used double sided adhesive film to attach the 'Frosted' gilding flakes. I die cut a frame from black card with nesties, made an acetate card and attached it to the front . I added some faux gems to the corners and some silver ribbon along the top.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bling it on: No patterned papers
By the cute and girly: anything goes
Lollipop Crafts: No sentiments allowed
Our Creative corner: totally transparent
Polkadoodles: ribbon and bows
Stamptacular Sunday: You Choose
The Crafty Pad: monochromatic

Thanks for calling by today, if you need some more inspiration pop over and check out my teamies fabulous projects :-)

  4. Wow, gorgeous card! Thanks for joining us at stamptacular sunday and I wish you luck on the challenge. Hope to see you soon again at SSC.


  5. This is such an inventive & stylish card - no wonder it was camera shy with all the shine. The dimensional aspects of this makes it striking expecially with the ribbon & the gems.
