355 Day 97, ABC, CCEE & Secret Crafter

I've not been making any cards for the last couple of days as I've had an ear infection that has turned into a cold and feel absolutely awful. I'm really bunged up and coughing like mad today. I'm eating the healthiest diet I have for years, fruit and veg coming out of my ears and still get a cold, how the hell does that happen?

Anyway, after doing so well with the 365 challenges for the rest of the week I really wanted to complete the challenges for Friday & Saturday and get another full week in.

This card is for the following challenges:-

365 Cards Day 97 - Make a card with the dominant shape of a diamond
CCEE - Sketch for the layout
Secret Crafter #35 - Add bling to your card

The starting point for this card was some K & Co Paper in a diamond design by Tim Coffey. I cut out 4 diamonds and matted it onto white and pink cards. The base cardstock is a pale peach colour that I feel co-ordinated very well, it's an A4 size folded in half. I added a Pentel white gel pen to the edges of the diamond and at the interestions of the colours to give it a quilted affect.

The sentiment is a rub on from DCWV. The floral ribbon is from Docrafts and I added a Sakura glitter pen to the centres. The flowers are Primas and I added more bling to the flowers on the rub-on and the Primas. They are small epoxy glitter bubbles from my stash. I have no idea what make they are though.
