I should be the Artstamps Show at Newbury Racecourse when you read this, meeting up with lots of lovely crafting pals.  So this posting is prescheduled to go live while I'm away - fingers crossed it appears OK. 

This card was specially commissioned by a pal who wanted a Silver Jubilee card for her local Priest who celebrated 25 years in the Priesthood this week. 

I decided that the CAS style would be perfect and used an Elusive Images stamp for the design.  This lovely cross is actually part of a Christmas image which I stamped and heat embossed with silver embossing powder before cutting out.  The congratulations sentiment is from a set by Dark Room Door and again embossed in silver.  The finishing touch was the addition of some clear gems to the design at the four points of the cross and in the centre.  I created a personalised message for the inside and my pal was really pleased with the finished card.

I'll be back home tomorrow and hopefully will have another project to share with you then.

Happy Sunday
