Using a little bit of everything

This card was a lot of fun to make.
My materials came from everywhere.
You can see that the "thirds" basic design
is very effective and pleasing to the eye.
The card base is covered with scrapbook paper.
A Fiskars corner scissors was used to round the edges.
The "ribbon" is a Fiskar border punched text weight paper,
under cardstock, with real ribbon as the final layer.
A Spellbinder geometric circle die was used for
the metallic silver circle frame. Vellum was
talced, then stamped with Hero Arts phrase
and embossed with fine line black embossing powder.
THEN position the silver circle frame over the
vellum and glue in place. Trim excess vellum
and attached to card.
The next step - the silk flowers and leaves were placed,
with "jewels" glued to the center of the flowers.
BASIC DESIGN RULE - always use an odd number
This is evident in this card;
the paper ribbon is place 2/3 of the way down the card,
there are three flowers and five leaves
and the silver frame is 1/3 of the way from the left edge.
