Bits n pieces

Another make with a few tatty bits!
This is another of those commissioned Golden Anniversary cards.

By the time I'd made them all (for the same recipient) I was running out of ideas so this one (which was sent from me) is a variation on a previous card.

I had some of this gold card which has a soft sheen on it - it's not as glaring as mirri card (which I always find difficult to work with) and I did like the overall finished effect once done.

Another quick and simple card really and a bit of a different shape for me!
I put some of the gold card behind the doily and chopped off the edge.

I had a scrap of white card leftover from the actual base so just cut it out using a fancy circle die and placed it on the top of the doily.

The honeysuckle blossom die is one (if you look at my blog regularly) you will know that I simply love and use to death really!

Cut out a couple and bunched them together securing with a small white organza bow and glued to the layered doily.
Two tiny die cut butterflies and I finished with a gold embossed anniversary sentiment.
