Ruby Anniversary commission

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs

I was food shopping a couple of weeks ago in the supermarket where I work when all of a sudden this loud voice boomed out "Jack, do you still make cards?" "Yes sez I". It was one of my bosses, never one for discretion, there she was near the greetings card aisle LOL. This card is the result, and of course, she wanted it within 48 hours. Still, it's more notice than I sometimes get!

Anyhow, enough waffling on, this is the card

A4 white linecard from The Range, folded and cut to 7x5.
Deep red card is from stash and I have so little of it left I don't like using it LOL.  It is a sort of mirri card but not as shiny, more a dull sheen and it is very classy. I bought it from a shop in Cheshire some years ago and have never seen it anywhere since BooHoo.
Memory Box leaves cut from the same red card.
Flowers punched with Woodware punches.
White pearlised card embossed with Couture Creations Tied Together folder.
Sentiment computer generated and printe using Vivaldi font, then cut with Spellbinders pierced oval die.
White sticky back pearls coloured with Copic marker pen.
And there you have it. I have since heard that the recipients loved it :o)
