Joanne, this is wonderful! You really have such a eye for mixing elements that one might not expect to work together - like the metal and the sequins in this case. I shy away from using colored gems and sequins because I feel my cards are not "fancy" enough for them, but you have inspired me to look at them differently with this card.
Lovely collage composition here. Just a terrific card!

I left this open when I was approving it, and then forgot to come back and comment. I was tickled by the fact that you used a French page, and i love the shapes and textures. Especially the loose arrowhead shape of the lower text (for want of a better description!), it really drew my eye in and helps draw attention to the words on the background paper.

Had to read your blog before I could even comment. This looks like it would be perfectly at home in an art gallery - it draws you in and doesn't let go. I find new things each time I look at it. Stunning combination of elements and fabulous design!
