Hello friends! I was honored when Sephanie asked me to make a sample for today's IC398, which is taken from Persona Jewelry. The site is full of beautiful beads and LOTS of silver! I spent a lot of time looking, but finally I chose THIS BEAD and THIS ONE. I loved the colors and pretty floral design of the first, but I also loved all the silver filagree designs and so I chose the second as well.
I started with a white base and layered on brushed silver paper, and then I cut my ODBD Quatrefoil Pattern Die from mirrored silver paper. On that I layered 2 layers of my SB Opulent Ovals, and then stamped my Anniversary Blessings cake image and the number 25, as well as the All Occasions Sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail ep. I hand cut the cake and popped it up on dimensionals. The sentiment is cut with the inside part of the SB Fancy Framed Tags 1 die and matted in brushed silver.
Then to pull in the colors and gems, I added ZVA Creative roses, MS punched leaves and various gems. It is a lot more glitzy than my usual, but the Fantasy Bead was pretty glitzy and this is just where it took me! lol
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!

WoW! That cake stamp is to "die" for...because thst is what I thought it was, a die cut. Fantastic cutting job, and the bg diecut is lovely on the mirror paper as well. All of the elements of this card are utterly perfect and gorgeous!
