Diamond Wedding

8" square

There is a lot of sparkle and bling on this Diamond Wedding Anniversary card.
I covered the Sissix flourish with glamour dust, the doily with glitter glue and the flowers, with irridescent gold glimmer mist.
The large curly rose is new from Wild Orchid.

The addition of a few 'diamonds', organza ribbon and a little peel-off butterfly finish it off.

The box is made of silver mirri card and the top edged with peel-offs. The Nellie Sneddon frame with the number on looked a bit bare on the front so I used a Spellbinder Fleur de Lys shape underneath.
I really struggle with these. They won't cut through my cardstock and when I use paper I have a right job to get the shape out of the die. Still, I shall persevere because I do like them.

A lace bow and some flowers - finished.

This is for the following challenges
Creative Inspirations - No stamped images
Daring Cardmakers - Diamond
Papertake - open theme

My apologies for lack of blog visiting.
I have been very busy since my last post but hardly enjoying myself.
Last w/end I was helping hubby and grandson concrete a base for his new shed.
Barrowing sand n gravel and mixing the odd load of concrete is not my idea of how to spend a Saturday.
Tuesday was our 47th wedding anniversary which was spent hedge cutting and gardening.
Thursday we had 2 new radiators put in and the shed was chap left it in the driveway....getting the panels around the back was hard work.
Friday more panel shifting while bubby gave it a coat of preservative.
Today I've been a gofer while son did the heavy work putting the shed together.
I ache like billy-oh, must be old age or summat, hahaha.

Thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely encouraging comments left recently.
I appreciate every one.
