Diamonds are Forever

Hiya folks!

Another lovely day here in bonny Scotland. Bit of a misty start but that is burning away now.
Hope you are all well out there in the world? If not, then I send you healing hugs!

My creation today is a bit of a rush job I'm sorry to say. These weeks just seem to keep flying by without me! lol. But I managed to knock it out last night, and finish it up this morning.

We are celebrating our Monarch's 60 years on the throne over at
and our theme is 'Diamonds are Forever'.
So get out all your bling peeps!! We are also being sponsored by our very own teamie Pascale with her fabby new digi-shop Gr8 Crafts4U.

Here is my rather rushed card:

Bit naff I'm afraid. You can see my wobbly edges on the stickles application! Papers are off my compy printed in pale grey. I have used my Lovey-Dovey Silhouette image for this one, but without any extra layers. Flowers were made using punches, stickles, large gems and spare card. I added more gems in two of the corners just to even the card out a bit, and some metallic grey pearls too.

Right need to get on.
Garden to sort, house to tidy, bedclothes to wash, dog to walk...never ending huh?
Catch ya later folks!

Some challenges -

DYSU - Birds
Paper Shelter - Bling it on
Penny's - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft - It Takes Two (two flowers, or two birds)
