Elegant Lady in Black and Blue


Oh dear! a bad few weeks and not much time for blogging!!!
Hubby is very poorly, Granddaughter has been in hospital and my lovely, kindhearted daughter's precious Pandora bracelet was stolen by the 'friend' who she  paid to help her with her house cleaning. This was a favour for this person as DD didn't really need her and she did a real crap job anyway. DD even picked her up and took her home twice a week.
The bracelet, or most of it, has been recovered but the 'friend'  and her friend who went with her to the jewellers to sell it got away scotfree, the police gave them a caution! There is more to this story but I won't bore you with any more of it. 
An awful betrayal of trust and very upsetting!!!!!

On to my card.....for my neice

I can't remember which CD the image is from. I have trouble opening CD's on my ancient PC so when I can I have been saving images in a folder.
The ribbon is navy blue but looks rather more like black in the pic.
The flower is made from some soft pliable metallic sheet - should have gone under the worktop over my appliances in my new kitchen - and is coloured with alcohol ink.
I scored the black strip at the bottom to match the blue stripey paper - I wish this showed in the pic :(
Doily painted with iridescent medium, a black feather and some pearls....and fini.
It really does look quite nice IRL
