Celebrate Diamonds

I am pleased to be a guest designer for Addicted to Clean & Simple this week.    Check out the design team inspiration, here:  addictedtocas

  The challenge is:

I love this die and this time I chose to put back some drop-outs cut from very sparkly silver card which gives a great texture.  The sentiment is cut from smooth metallic silver; a bit more subtle so the diamonds stand out.  The white card is lightly misted with frost shimmer.
I reckon this could be for an engagement (more diamonds!), wedding, anniversary or whatever.

Diamond die: Tim Holtz
Word die: Paper Smooches

Hi Carol! I also have that die, so thanks for the great idea on what to do with it! I love how you added the sparkly silver diamonds but used the smooth silver for the sentiment.
Thanks for being our Guest Designer.
