Sapphires for September

Just a quick update from me today - it's all a bit hectic around the Waffle Zone atm!

Today is Daring Cardmakers day and for our dare this week it's another of the Birthstone themed challenge.
The birthstone for September is the
Sapphires are also the traditional gemstone for the 45th Wedding Anniversary and we'd like you to use the Sapphire as your inspiration for your DCM card this week

I've used the September Sketch File sketch again to make my card this week
The papers are from a pack of Japanese handmade papers, the letter S is Robo cut and the oval backing piece is cut with a Nesties die and embossed with a CBug folder (Style Flowers.  The little coiled roses were made with scraps of the Japanese papers.
Also used:
tiny gems (Anitas) Blue organza ribbon with silver strands, wired rose, Prima flower, lace, acrylic flower, pearl and diamante bead strands, punched plain and scalloped ovals for sentiment, the sentiment is a home made rub on decal.
Sorry to have been so MIA this week, normal service will be resumed soon!
Thanks for visiting
