Golden birthday card

As well as a wedding anniversary my aunt is also celebrating her birthday next week.  As she and my uncle are off on a fabulous cruise tomorrow (starting in China!) we had to let her have her cards this weekend.
This is the card I have made from her nieces and nephews.  It has lots of layers and is quite heavy!

I used layers of cream and white card all cut with the same edge die.

A medallion die by Spellbinders forms the centrepiece.

And a birthday die in gold adds the sentiment.

I tied a creamy ribbon into a bow, then took small gold gems and stuck them individually on to the die cut areas.
I think it finishes off the look very nicely. 

What seemed a really simple idea took ages to do but I am very pleased with the outcome.

Catch you soon.  TTFN Jude xx
