Somerset sojourn!

Just back from a very nice visit to Somerset, visiting my sister as it was her birthday weekend. I decided to make a tea light card but substituted the tea lights with pots of glitter as she is also a crafter. I covered the base card with some lovely papers that were part of blog candy that I was lucky enough to win from Jacki and distressed the edges with Black Soot and the front edge was punched with an MS punch. Inside I made a pocket to hold the greeting tag and on the right I made a box with an acetate aperture for the pots of glitter. I used ribbon as decoration and on the front I printed out a Debbi Moore image from the Paris cd and gemmed and glittered it, mounted onto black mat and a Marianne flourish.
Front of card sitting in box.
Pink pearls accentuate the daisy edge and the acetate window on the box has a butterfly stamped and glittered on it.
Thanks for looking ;)

She is drop dead gorgeous and the embellishments and DP you gave her just really makes her even more feminine and lovely!
