Midway Post Challenge #31 at Open-Minded Crafting

Saturday again 
and it is again our halfway point
over at Open-Minded Crafting.

And yet again my beloved is doing another 12 day shift,
roll on next Payday,
 and some lucky lady (namely me !!)
should hopefully get spoilt lol.
I did get a Bunch of Flowers and
a trip to the Cinema after the last big shift !

But to be honest he treats me like a Queen
all the time anyway.
He's always giving me little treats and surprises.

Anyway on with my card I would like to share
with you today.

Then I Die-Cut out my Image using
the Scalloped Oval Framelit
(Oval Collection - Stampin' Up!)
and stained the edges with 
Antique Linen Distress Ink
(Tim Holtz).

For my Sentiment I use a programme called
and chose the papyrus backing,
picked my colour, 
and what words I wanted.
Then Cut it out and using 
a 5mm Corner Punch 
rounded off the corners.
I also edged this with the 
Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Then Decoupaged it up on my Card.

For some Glitz and Glam,
I added Holographic White Glitter on 
the Car Body Work.
Holographic Silver around the Head Lights
and the Windscreen.
(both from Glitter Magic).
And I used Glossy Accents 
to show the glass in the
Headlights and the Windscreen. 

And finally I added a 1cm Bobbled White Pearl Gem,
and 2 5mm Flat-flat Back White Pearls
(both from my stash)
to the top Right Corner.
And I Handmade a Bow using
a 6mm Pink and White Checked Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
For the bottom of the Card.
