Chandelier birthday

Today I would like to share with you a pretty chandelier card I made for one of the ladies in the stamping group that introduced me to the best place in the world, Hollo's!

It's her birthday, and while this card really has nothing to do with birthdays, I hope she likes it anyway.

I am really into bling lately.  I CBed the card base.  The black band on the bottom is the wrong side of a shiny black ribbon.  The shiny side just wasn't right.  The chandelier is an scal file I found at http://scale-files.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-01-14T01:41:00-08:00&max-results=7 .  There are a lot of neat files there, but you really have to wade through to find what's right for you.  I hope this inspires you to dust off your cricut and get to work!

You chose the perfect embossing folder to go with your elegant image. The rhinestones are fab on your chandelier.

yes, I think you have inspired me to do just that. I really liked the way you framed your image and with just a hint of pink around the edge .
