Variation on a theme

I made a card this morning for my boss and was a bit frustrated that I couldn't do more with it as she doesn't like fuss and frills. To get over that I made another one like it :0)

I was able to do more with this one, but discovered that I really didn't need to add much more to make the card more effective. Don't get me wrong..... I like how the first card turned out, I just would have liked to have done more with it. I find making tonal or monochromatic cards very therapeutic, so I have tried to stick with two closely related colours for this one.

With this version I have added white card, vellum, brads and more gems. I have used one of my new digi stamps and edged the die cut in silver. I have added glitter to the wings for a bit of sparkle and used a fine gold gel pen on the jewellery she is wearing. I seem to have a thing about winged creatures at the moment as they keep turning up in my cards. I think that it is a very girly card so I will be entering it for the challenges at Simon Says and Stamp Something. Charisma Card Challenge asked us to use fairies which is what finalised my decision for which image to use.

I was going to do more with the center panel of the card, but it was starting to get a bit bulky and I was worried in case it needed to be sent in the post. I think that I wont use the brads in the center panel next time I make one of these.
I'm still trying to work out how to show a larger image when you click on the photos, so please bare with me on that.
Hugs to you all
