Hi, thank you for popping by...
A fun card for today.  I used a white A4 card base, folded in half to create an A5 size card.  I matted and layered this with gold foundation card/CE and a black sparkle card/Crafter's Companion.  I used the frame from the Shadow Box Collection - In The Garden, by SW for CE and cut this out on gold foundation card and added mounting foam to the back, for dimension, I sprayed the frame with Stick and Spray by Crafter's Companion and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkle by CE over it then adhered it to some pretty paper, in a peachy taupe, from my stash. 
I used several elements from SW's Retail Therapy - Shadow Box Accessory Die Set and for the lipstick and nail polish I add Cosmic Shimmer Clear Varnish Lacquer to give the lipstick and nail polish a sheen.  I cut 4 layers of 'Just For You' in white foundation card, adhered these together then sprayed the sentiment, again with Crafter's Companion's Stick and Spray, and covered it with Diamond Sprinkles.
As this card was for a friend's 60th birthday I used my label maker to print 'Sexy 60' for the nail polish and 'Red Hot' for the lipstick.
I used 2 stamps by Woodware for the verse and stamped these onto white paper using Ranger's Distress Ink in 'Hickory Smoke', this colour gives a softer appearance compared to using a sharp black ink pad, as shown below

Don't forget that for a chance of owning yesterday's card you need to leave me a comment as I'll be announcing the winner tomorrow!
Enjoy the remains of the weekend
Thanks for visiting...
