Happy Thursday everyone. I wanted to share with you today a card I did for Virtual Stamp Night which was last Saturday, October 24. We were to be inspired by "Phantom of the Opera". We had a link to the video for Phantom of the Masquerade Ball. While viewing this I kept thinking of the word "opulence". I have a "thing" for words...lol Anyway, the colors were white, black, and gold with lots of over the top accessories of pearls and jewels....in other words "opulence". Opulence is defined as - a great wealth or abundance!So here you can see I have an abundance of embellishments. You know I love my embellishments and I don't need an excuse to use them. But I really piled them on here. You can just tell I really enjoyed myself doing this too...don't you???? Come on, you can tell me!!! LOL These are those flowers I talked about yesterday that are from Fred She Said and her Whirly Collection. I took gold ink and distressed the flowers with them and put stickles on top of the gold. Really shiny and beautiful IRL. The reindeer was gold embossed from a stamp from Inkadinkadoo as well as the Noel sentiment. The gold feather is from Michael's in the floral section where you get your wreath making picks. I used the Fleur De Lis Spellbinders die cut, and the Grand Lace Borderibilities. Here is the inside with more of the flowers from Fred She Said. I was able to use every bit of them I printed out...no waste here!!! And when I was trying to find something clever for the inside....wouldn't you know I came across this stamp in my stash that I have had for years. It was absolutely perfect for my card!!! lol It doesn't get any better than that. So I think I achieved the "opulence" I was going for. So don't be surprise if I visit you at your blog or on Split Coast Stampers to find a comment from me with my new word....opulence!!! LOL
Have a wonderful day.
