The Met Office issued a weather warning of exceptionally high winds for today across Central and Southern Scotland. Oh My Giddy Aunt! - they aren't wrong and those nasty winds are accompanied by lashing rain too! Sensible people are staying home where it is safe and warm. Others who fall into the category of not so sensible and have appointments to make ... YEP! Yours Truly ... are wrapping up and venturing out, hoping they will make it back in one piece.
Just in case the unthinkable should happen, I'd like to show a card made for my sister whose birthday was earlier this month.
The pretty glittered peacock feather was another result from when Humbugger Ann was visiting in March and I sneaked a 'steal' of her lovely metal stencil and embossing paste.
With the stencil carefully removed, 3 complimentary colours of fine glitter were sprinkled seperately ... one side, then the other and finally the middle ... to create a graduated look.
Ooooooohhhhh ... sparkly-licious!
This was then trimmed before double-matting onto mega-shiny turquoise and purple foil card. A DL card blank was decorated with alternating panels of blue sparkly card and purple foil card, which had been Cuttlebug embossed with Swiss Dots.
A little bow, birthday sentiment and adhesive gems are all the finishing touches this glittery card needed.
Think it may qualify for a few challenges and there's only one way to find out so here goes nothing.
