Silver Wedding Bling

*******************

8" square

Oh my word!! Loads -a -bling!! Not only gems but glitter too - no expense spared here LOL
This is for  BIL & SIL's 25th Wedding Anniversary.

I bought the interlocking circles embossing folder at the NEC and this is it's first outing. Die cut a circle and popped it up with foam tape and adhered it to the mat with a pierced border in the style of Sue of Particraft fame - took a while to get the measurment right but love the result. 







The silver circle is die cut from a Christmas cracker and is beautifully shiny and glittery.
I used some silver cord I've been hoarding for the bow and finished with a flower made from very light metal embossed and then added a brad gem in the centre.
