My card for today uses Diamond Ring, which is today's featured image from Shelly's Images! That means this fabulous image is on sale, today only. Hurry over to the Shelly's Images Store to pick up this image for your very own at this special price!
I've colored the Diamond Ring image with Promarkers and added some sparkle with a clearstar gelly roll pen as well as highlights with a gold metallic gel pen. I found this fabulous black paper embossed with metallic gold designs, in my stash, and knew it was perfect for this image. I then layered it with a strip of gold metallic paper printed with tiny gold stars, then added black sheer ribbon with white splatter spots, down the center of the gold metallic strip. (It's difficult to see in the pic because the light reflected on all the metallics and almost blurred out the ribbon to where you can see the lines of adhesive beneath the sheer ribbon - and they look gold! LOL) The black and white patterned strip down the right side is actually for Halloween and is by Martha Stewart. It really goes well with the other papers, I think, and doesn't even look Halloween! (Yay, me, for thinking outside the box! LOL) The black and white printed paper strip is accented with metallic gold flatback pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. above the image, I embellished with metallic gold branches punched with the branch punch by Martha Stewart, then added a two layer flower. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Studio G.
I absolutely love how this turned out! This has become a favorite image of mine!
I originally created this is an Anniversary card, but it could also be used as a wedding card or even just to say "I Love You."
