LIM 72 - Something Shiny

First let me apologise for not visiting anyone last week to comment on your entries for the Less is More challenge. I have been very busy with several sets of family visiting and various complications with the visits. There's been much to-ing and fro-ing to airports and lots of changing of bedsheets! Also sorry that this weeks pic is so bad (click on the image for a better view) I will try and improve on it if I can but white on white with a bit of bling is always going to be a challenge! On the Less Is More blog this week we have to use something shiny. I was making this card for my in-laws who celebrate 60 years together next month and it needed some diamond bling so it fitted the bill perfectly. The frilly die is by XCut and the flower is made up of a TH & Mariane dies. I used spun sugar DI on the edges of the flower to make it stand out a little more. The text is computer generated.
