A friend's card

Another one for Lisa's 45th birthday! This time it's from me. I don't do much with this stamp and have seen a lot of samples around so I thought I'd have a go. Firstly I stamped the image and cut round the edge of it, leaving a third of the inside of the card exposed. I put a gold mirri matt onto the inside of the card. I gold embossed the elegant lady and coloured it in with sakura gelly glazes. (Except the ickle doggy is a white gel pen to make him stand out!) I think gelly glaze pens work really well on black card and make the suit sparkle. I gold stamped happy birthday onto black gloss card and edged the left hand side with double sided tape and glitter. The pic does not do the card justice.

Hi everyone. I'm the lucky girl who received this card from my very special friend. It's absolutely beautiful. I also received the previous card on Denize's blog (mum to daugher) and as I said then, the cards look far nicer in real life than they do on the screen. Gorgeous gorgeous cards and I'm very lucky to have received them. Thank you Denize. xxx
