Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 163

This time, at Crafty Cardmakers, we want you to use gems or pearls on your creation - that's it!

I decided to make a card for my sister whose birthday is later this month. I decided to use a gorgeous image from the Crafter's Companion Kimono collection, and a matching paper.

I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements, aand finished the card with a matching insert and a couple of gem flourishes I bought ages ago but had never opened. I must admit, I worried they'd be impossible to apply, and, while they were a little tricky, they weren't as hard as I'd expected. One disadvantage of the paper I use to print digital images is that it's got a top layer which is a little tender - it produces gorgeous, vibrant colours without looking like photo paper, but get a bit of adhesive on it and it'll strip off. Fortunately, I didn't have that problem here!

I hope you can join us this time!
