Tropical Sunset


My mojo seems happy to play just lately so I am taking advantage and going with the flow! This one is a birthday card and I've had a lovely time making it. I've used the Faberge Style Egg, Tropical beach which I've coloured with various inks and ink dusters and a couple of grey promarkers to give extra depth. I printed off the egg stand onto gold mirror card along with the diamond shaped buckle from the Embellishments sheet and heat embossed them with fine detail gold ep. I've used  star dust stickles for the 'stones' in the buckle. My main bp is from Funky collection 3. I've mounted the egg onto a piece of white pearlescent paper wchich I've cut out with a nesties label (4 I think). Another piece of white pearlescent paper and a piece of matt gold card have both been put through different cuttlebug folders and the card has been finished off with a piece of white satin ribbon and 4 gold mirri 'brads' made using a 1/4" punch.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
