A very special occasion for my 100th post!!! An MBE!!

A neighbour has had an MBE!! I have never made a card for this before and a fair chance I will never make one again! Another neighbour told me on Tuesday and it took me until this morning to get my head around what I was going to put on the card.

A 8x8in white card matt and layered with red and white embossed card. The white card is embossed using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have printed the image and cut it out and mounted it with a Spellbinders set of dies. The sentiment is cut out with a Crafts Too scalloped oval from a nesting die. The bottle is cut out using a Tattered Lace die. I have completed the card with red gems.
