Shiny Silver


I made this card for the Week 3 challenge over at Tilda and Company. The challenge was to use silver, which for some weird reason is a colour I only ever seem to use at Christmas. I found some gorgeous textured silver card which I've been hoarding for ages and ages. The biggest part of this challenge was to actually cut it up and use it!
I've used my gorgeous silver card (which doesn't show up that well in the photo), paper by Karen Neuberger, Prima flowers with silver brad centres and of course, Magnolia stamps! Stickles 'Star Dust' on the torn paper edge and on the wings.

great card, well done for tearing up that paper, hard isn't it?! Do you have trouble parting with some cards that you really love after you've made them? I do! lol
