Managed to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and make this card. It's a wedding card and I think it'll be heading for Italy - well, there's an italian connection of some sort anyway. The brief was "something with gold and little roses" . I made a vellum wrap (so it qualifies for Kel's Dare - see previsous message) with some yummy vellum from pda which has tiny gold and silver foil speckles all over it, I sewed it on with several strands of fine gold thread and added some gold and red beady dangles. The message panel shows through an aperture cut in the vellum, the ros panel is stuck on the top of the vellum.
