indian anniversary card

As usual when i get an order they are less than normal lol
a friends mum asked me to make a card for her friends 1st anniversary, she wanted a personalised card with the taj mahal on it,
I had several weeks of sleepless nights thinking how to make this card look any good
and once i had started i actuall enjoyed making it, the heart was made purely of golden coloured gems and matted on the gold and red card stock
Only the next morning disaster happened and the glossy accents had dripped down the card, i was devastated lol
(can you see the line leading down from the heart lol

So i had to get my thinking cap on very quick and rejigged things around a bit and this if the new finished card

I will be entering this into a few challenges

  1. a spoonful of sugar ~ photo inspiration
  2. Charisma ~ valentines/love
  3. Simon says stamp ~ love is in the air
  4. Penny's ~ hearts a flutter
  5. Papertake weekly~ anthing goes with optional extra of flowers
