Sapphire Anniversary and Die Cuts

I've just been asked to make a card for a Sapphire Wedding Anniversary card, which fell in quite nicely with two challenges. Make My Monday who are asking for cards to mark Anniversaries and CD Sunday who are asking for cards with Die Cuts. I started with an 8x8 card base and backing papers and topper from Debbi Moore's Art Deco Rome.  The backing paper has been mounted onto gold mirri card, then onto the card base. I added some die cut corners for a Marianne die to two of the corners. Next using foam pads I've added the topper and a sentiment which has been made on the PC then put through the foiling machine. The flowers and leaves are also die cut, are from a Crelies die . To finish I added some blue gems to the centre of the flowers.



Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
