Birthday card for my friend


Hi All, I am sharing a card I made for my friends Birthday, she does not follow my blog so I should be safe posting it the same day I am mailing it.   I used one of my favorite papers, Gecko Galz Arabian Dreams, it is so very rich and colorful, it worked perfectly with the Gecko Galz image from the Hindu Beauty collage set.    I looked it up and I believe the Peacock feather is to signify prosperity, the image is stunning.  I framed the image with some skinny black ribbon with an eyelet edge, then a die cut frame behind that, I used a little bit of Copic marker on the edges of the die cut frame and I used some foam tape to lift it up and give it some dimension.  I finally used some of my prized ribbon I have been hoarding, (sometimes they are so pretty I am afraid to use them, lol)  I had to cut it in 1/2 to fit it on the card, I pretty much built the card around the ribbon, if you look closely you can see the sequins and tulle.  
Well that's it for today, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
