For my Daughter

Hi all
 I made this card for my daughters birthday, which was last Friday.

I can't believe she was 27 - where does the time go....
I started with the caught in crystal technique using alcohol inks on to acetate and adding Glamour dust to give it some sparkle. I'm not sure how well this comes through in the pictures.
I created a frame for this using SW oval frames from her festive collection ( the let it snow and the lattice snowflake die)

 I mounted this on to some white card stock which I had embossed with a mask and ink through to make it pop a little more.
I then added layers of teal and white card cut from SW double pierced square dies.
The sentiment is computer generated. I then added SW complete Camellia flowers to complete the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your week.
