Quick and Easy Elegance

Today is my sister-in-law's birthday and the card I made for her uses a QVC Kanban kit bought earlier this year.  The quality of these kits is second to none, and the contents include highly reflective, metallic embossed cardstock in various beautiful colours, matching glittered acetate, ribbons, toppers and frames.   The only thing missing was a pack of envelopes, but as plain white A5 envelopes are readily available in all supermarkets and stationers it's only a little niggle and not worth making a fuss about.  
Whilst I feel slightly extravagant having used a whole A4 sheet folded in half for the base card, I must admit it makes a very elegant and expensive looking card.   Just check out the reflective finish ... it's blinding!
The matching toppers and frames are just as beautifully embossed as the cardstock so a few foam pads are all that's needed to complete a gorgeous card.  
Quick ... Easy ... and Oh So Elegant.
Hopefully my card qualifies for the following challenges ... 
Totally Papercrafts 18 - Monochromatic
My Time To Craft 93 - Vivid Greetings Cards
A Spoonful of Sugar 105 - Celebrations
Tanda Stamps - Go Large
