MMM Diamonds and Flourishes

or as Suzanne said ... Diamonds are a girls best friemd1 ;o)
This is the last week of the Romance theme with diamonds and flourishes as a sub theme. Thank you Suzanne for a great month of romance. There have  been some wonderful entries so thank you to all the challenge followers too.

Updated version... I thought the original looked a bit flat! so I've added some flowers, CS freebie, to give it some dept

Crafty Individuals Flourish C1-182
La Blanche Framed lady.
IndigoBlu sentiment.
Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Marvy Deco Colour Liquid Gold , extra fine
Cream card stock 14cmx14cm.

I cut around the flourish with a craft knife to slip the 
frame underneath.

I used the gold fine liner to highlight the flourish, frame and the words  of the sentiment with a bold font . Didn't wont to obliterate the finer font.

I hope you will join in with this weeks challenge theme of Diamonds and flourishes at MMM
Don't forget to check out the fabulous DT inspiration pieces at Make My Monday and remember this month there is a prize from Marrianne Creatables.

.Have a good week.

This is gorgeous Sue, soooo elegant! Love all the gold highlights and I must check out that IB quote (very Mae West, lol). I'm quite a fan of their stamps but I've not noticed that one.

BTW forgot to say last night, love your header photo. I've still not cracked how to do that as when I tried I ended up with a huuuuuuuge header. Obviously I need to resize but I'm lazy and hate doing that so ...... months after trying it I still don't have a decorative header, lol!

Hope the sun is shining for you this morning.

This is absolutely AMAZING, Suzi! LOVE the gold accents--and I love both versions! You're so talented! :)

Golly gosh! these are very beautiful cards, love the image too

Vicky Hayes said...

These are both lovely but I do prefer the first. I like the way the space makes your eye follow the flourish down to the picture and from there to the sentiment. The gem to dot the question mark is the most perfect touch! Vicky x

I can't believe all the amazing detail you've added to this in gold. That just makes the card even more rich and dazzling. The flowers were the perfect idea and the trim to them as well....very nice! Gorgeous card. :)

Thank you so much for sharing in our Linky Party at Make It Monday!
