Bedazzled & Bejeweled

This is an 25th Anniversary card I made for
my brother & sister in-law.  I can't believe
it has been 25 years already!  

I went a little crazy with the jewels!  It is for a 
special occasion, so it is worth pulling out
the good china! LOL! The jewels seemed
to break it up just a tad by adding
some texture.

This is the front.  I followed a sketch.  
I see I forgot a jewel! Oops!

The design is on the paper etched in velvet
The pendants are layered with popdots.They are 
Spellbinders Shapeabilities- Renaissance Hearts.
Side view of Easel Card

The inside- It is black paper.  Light makes it look green

The whole card

Close up of inside
 The punch is French Scroll by M.S.
The numbers and the flowers are glittered
