Challenge 4,Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend.

This is my DT card for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters 4th Card Challenge,the theme is Diamonds are a girls best friend and as I needed to make a card for a friends 30th birthday I thought diamonds would be perfect! I cut an aperture in the card using a white Revolution Nesting circle and used Whitewash Coordinations through my cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder for the scalloped Nestie frame and the centre circle.
I punched my white flowers and shaped them placing some lovely "diamonds" from Paperchase into the centres. The flourishes were cut using a Revolution Flourish die,I added a touch of diamond stickles to these and around the inside centre circle. I hadn't any tiny gems suitable for the tiny punched flowers so used some holographic peel-off dots in the centres and added a spot of 3d glaze over them. This gave a great result and I actually prefer this look over the acrylic gems.

I really hope you come and join us again this week as every winner will be added into the Christmas draw for the soon to be released Gayle Bond Digi stamps!
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

When you cut aperture into a card it looks all gorgeous and elegant. When I try that it looks all wonky, weird and wrong. I guess some girls just have it and some don't, lol
