Onto today's card - a simple pair of die cuts on, would you believe it, another napkin base!

The bird, an older Inspire S/B In Flight die, was cut out of metallic paper

The greeting was also an older S/B die, cut twice in card and once in the metallic paper

These were mounted over the napkin background, and three pink sequins were the finishing touch.

Metallics can be difficult to photograph. Love the fact you managed to capture the shine from the images. Great card. Love the finished interior.

Hugs and Blessings

Glimmer/shimmer/shine is always a good thing. I always like to see the little details you add inside. CarolG

What wonderful colour and shine and no I wouldn't believe that is a napkin base, but as you tell us it is I suppose I have to believe it xx

Love your use of napkins but the bird was the most striking piece. It looks fabulous in metallic card. Love how you echoed the metallicness (is that a word?) in the stripes and placing them diagonally echoes "flight" for me. A great card
Blessings, Neet xx
