Filigree Jewels


I am back for my third post of the day (I know, like buses hey!?)  Sorry to bombard you with posts, but while I've got the chance I wanted to get them all up before I miss the challenege deadlines!

I made this card for this months' challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook.  I haven't played along for ages which is a shame because I always really enjoy the inspiration that is provided and it always gets the mojo going!  :)

The inspiration board for this challenge was GORGEOUS!  I couldn't pass up on the opportunity!

How stunning is that bad boy?!

Hopefully you'll be able to tell which aspects I plucked as my inspiration...

And here's a little close up - hopefully it shows the dimension.  Also, I was quite pleased with myself that I managed to pop up those tiny little elements surrounding the fleur de lis - hence the close up!

These are not usually colours that I would use together, but I think they look really nice and subtle and let the intricacy of the die cuts do the work.

I really hope you like it, another enjoyable card for me :)

Thanks for stopping by :)
