Copper Glitzy Chic

Well, I hope it's chic - ish.

I was walking past a craft shop yesterday lunchtime and my shoes decided to take a detour, the way they do. ;o) Before I knew what was happening I was downstairs in the card making section. Amazing, huh?

Anyway, as I tried to make my shoes walk out of the store, I spotted what I thought was a sheet of toppers but in fact it was a 'create an instant card' package. I fell in love with the toppers, so I figured "no problem - I can still do my own thing with these."

Then my eyes made me look at some glittery sheets (don't you just hate it when your eyes do that?) and the top sheet was all coppery just like the toppers. Oh well, in for a penny.... I came out of that shop with a little carrier bag.

When I got home last night I saw the fantastic sketch on the Truly Scrumptious challengeblog. That's it! I thought, perfect for what my naughty feet and eyes made me buy today. I really think the sketch suits the topper and glitter.
I wish my photo did this justice. It is soooo pretty and sparkly and coppery (such a nice change of colour). The only thing I've added to the sketch is a bow. It needs nothing else at all.

One of the sheets of paper in the card making pack had this beautiful image on it, so I decided to just decorate the inside with that paper. There's enough glitz on the front of the card so I wanted the inside to be simple.
Items used:
Colour Connection Glitter Sheets
The Red Line - make a card today pack (Code 943P)
Black satin ribbon
Black Card
2 x-cut punches for the flowers.
