Good evening. Here we are at the end of Wednesday which means it is all down hill from here to the weekend and more time for crafting! Hurray!

A card for 2 challenges:
Critter Challenge #48, Colour and Embellishment which requires blue and silver with Pearls or Rhinestones and  Sketch n Stash #53 which provided the sketch for the card layout. The Stash element is the gorgeous blue patterned and textured card which I have had for ages.

A lovely blue pearlescent card provided the A5 base card. Lovely card this - it is white pearlescent on the other side giving a very luxurious inside surface as well.

A strip of the textured blue card was cut to size and it was edged with silver mirror card cut out with a Borderability. This is such a gorgeous pattern too.

The main image is from a Clarity stamp which was simply stamped on glossy, white card using Denim Adirondack ink. This was cutout with a circular Nestability and the edges tinted with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. A silver mirror card scalloped circle was cut to make the backing.

The flowers are from a Cricut cartridge - I can't remember which one. The two different sizes were made on Gypsy and cut on the Cricut. These were tinted with the same Distress ink and layered with Pinflair glue. The large rhinestones were set in the middle of each flower.

The card was assembled to give the result you see above. I hope you like it.
