Shiny Sparkly & Blingy...

...with Anything But a Card this fortnight.  My entry for the challenge is a commission I did in the summer for a 25th anniversary but I think is perfect for this brief as there is lots of silver mirri card and embellishments.  Sorry in advance but this post is top-heavy with photos so I will keep my words to a minimum ...thank goodness you say!


I decorated a gift box which had perfume in it with the gorgeous papers from ...........(I need to find this out and am at work)..and made an album from the covers of an old Next Directory.  I won't show the pages within the album (as we will be here until Christmas) - but they are decorated personal to the couple throughout their 25 years together.



The chipboard letters were painted with acrylic paint and edged with darker coloured acrylic paint.



The Lord & Lady die (LR0211) from Marianne Design was perfect for this project.  I also used a range of other Marianne Design dies and paper flowers - as they are so pretty and the lady in question likes her pretty  and feminine things.



As well as the Anything But a Card challenge I am entering the following challenges:-
