Congratulations!!!!

I've been eying these scissors from the Sentimentals cart for quite some time and finally got to use them because my friend recently got a new job as a hair stylist!! YAY!! :)Unfortunately, the card did not photograph very well.  The paper that looks pink is really a light shade of purple.


Again the scissors and the mirror were cut using the Sentimentals cart. I used a congrats stamp directly on the reflective paper and then covered it with a piece of a transparency, so the stamp wouldn't scratch off.  I used a bunch of adhesive gemstones on the mirror and scissors.


I decided to make the card an easel card.


I used glittery silver ribbon. As you can see I embossed a 4"x5" sheet of black paper with the Sizzex Cheetah embossing folder.

The sentiment on the inside of the card says "To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.
The picture below photographed well; you can see the purple paper rather well.


I meant for the card to be a little on the wild side, but not over the top. I think I succeeded. :)
