For a Fabulous Friend

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good day.  Now I am not working I have made a start on some of those jobs that I never had time to get round to.  Today I started clearing out some cupboards and drawers.  The stuff you accumulate and hang onto just in case.  My bin is now filling up nicely lol.

I did spend a couple of hours crafting and made a card using Art Deco Roaring Twenties decoupage pack from Papermania.

I used a spellbinders die to cut the mat for the image to sit on.  I used black card for the die cut shape and the matting.  There is lots of dimension with the decoupage image.  For embellishments I used some ribbon, some rectangular gems and a dazzler on the bow.  
Quite a quick card to do and another one for my stock.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do love reading all your comments.
