Diamonds are forever...

This was the hardest card to photograph as you can probably tell - it's much better in real life believe me!


Recipe:
Stamps - Damask Designs
Ink - Encore Metallic Silver
Card - Silver Shimmer
Other - Fiskars border punch/silver ribbon/silver embellished heart/adhesive gems/corner rounder punch


It was a commission from a friend to make a Diamond Anniversary card - I immediately thought of Damask Designs because it's such an elegant set. The background damasks were stamped with Metallic ink which is why I couldn't photograph it well! I couldn't help but add lots of sparkly gems - well anyone who's been together for 60 years (OMG!) deserves it I think!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
