Sister's 50th birthday card

Hi everybody!
I made this birthday card for one of my sisters, it was her 50th birthday and she likes stylish things so thought she would love this beautiful chandelier. Inspiration was taken from Jak at Crafters Kitchen who's work i admire!

Side view to show the silver embossing and brad !

I stamped and embossed the image in silver and then added some "glamour dust" to give it a bit sparkle, i was going to use some black embossing powder on it but it turned out a mess because the powder stuck to the card and left specks all over it --urggg !!    --- so i decided to use silver instead !

 The card was made with "Pink Frog" black stardream card, i love this card as its nice and strong with a lovely finish.  The beautiful backing paper was a freeby thanks to Jak  from Crafters Kitchen---the chandelier stamp was from "Papermania"  --   I used a computer generated message and added some black gems, i used two pieces of black ribbon tied in a knot in the centre with a spacer and brad from Hobbyhouse to hold it in place. I loved the finished result,  i hope you do!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking !
