Something a bit different

Good morning all.  Hope you are all well.
Today's card is a bit of a departure for me, but I was inspired by a card from the current Craft Stamper magazine.
I used the Serene Snowflakes stamps from SU (I'm so glad I bought these), with pink and bronze Brilliance ink.  I added a piece of pink satin ribbon and mounted the panel on to some brown glitter paper, which I then mounted on to the base card.  I stamped the sentiment (Paula Pascual) in the pink ink and then punched it out with the Word Window punch from SU.  I also punched the Modern Label from brown glitter paper and mounted the sentiment on to that.  I then die cut the two flourishes from the glitter paper using Die-Namics Fancy Flourish, and added this to the card before finally 3D-ing the sentiment on top.
What do you think?  I'm really pleased with it, the colour scheme in particular.
How's you week been?  Mine has been long and busy as usual, although yesterday our school was shut for an occasional day.  I went Christmas shopping with Mark to Milton Keynes.  We had a really productive and successful day, and apart from a couple of bits and bobs, I'm done!  We had time to meet my best friend for lunch and then to call in at my sister's for a cup of tea before heading home.  We really spoilled ourselves by stopping for a meal at Pizza Express before getting home at 10pm.  We were out of the house for 13 hours!  The kids and dog were well looked after as my parent were at my house.  It was lovely to have a day with Mark, we don't get a lot of "us" time.
Well today is a day of Christmas card making (I hope), as well as an overdue appointment at the opticians.
Have a great day, thanks for dropping by.

  1. Hi Michelle
    This card is really pretty. I like the combination of the elements and the die-cut flourishes are particularly effective.

    Thanks for leaving a message on my blog. I think I got away with the fairy lobotomy!

  2. What a lovely day you had Michelle! It can make it feel very special when you don't get out together a lot.

    I love your pretty glittery card and the colour scheme is great!
