I've had the centerpiece I used in this card for quite awhile. My punchie pal, Benzi, sent it to me back in the "old days"! I used the 1st one she sent me a long time ago, but now I'm finally using the 2nd one. It's an interesting vine with sparkled butterflies going up it.
This is for one of my family members who ALWAYS knows the right piece to give me - blue and white decorum. She really puts a lot of thought into it before she gives it to me. I've never matched anything close to giving her something that special.
Anyway, her apartment is beautiful and has lots of vanilla and gold pieces in it. At least that's what it looks like from her photos. This card was made as an inspiration of my take on her apartment. I hope she likes it as much as I love the things she has given me.
The gold pieces I used were a textured gold, but you can't see from photo. I added other b/flies, pearls, punches, gold leaf pen, a b/fly ef on the image panel, paper piercing and a nestie to highlight the beautiful piece Benzi sent me.
No stamping here, but I think all the gold makes up for it.
Thanks for stopping by and sorry the image is a bit blurry with all the gold and sparkle.

This is just so beautiful Fruitcake! Let's see, with the embossing on the edge punch and the butterflies, all you need is an old stamp to put this into the Twisted Sistahs gallery today. Well, just tell them I said you could use the old stamper card. Bwahahahaha!
I missed you!
