My Best Friends 55th .......

 Morning all, hope you are all well & happy. Today is my best friends 55th Birthday. We are the same age, and although my birthday isn't until May, we always go out in between the birthdays to celebrate. 

I really enjoyed making this card, although, as normal, it wasn't my first idea !!

I had it in mind to make the flowers using the white and gold. I made them first then did the centre part and then the layering in gold and white.

To me something was missing, but I couldn't think what. Then I was deciding which birthday die to cut out. I had this Elizabeth Crafts die, which I thought would be suitable. When I opened up the packaging for the die, I found a black one already cut out. So I just lay it onto the card to see for size.....then it hit me !! It needed the black to make the other colours stand out !! That's when I decided to do another layer of black card behind the others and add black gems to the flowers. 
Just like "magic" it all fitted into place - result !!

Do you have "eureka" moments too ??

Bye for now x
