BG Aperture - Gift With Bow

This card is for the Basic Grey Challenge using my image Gift with Bow

The aperture I created using label 1 dies, it's very hard to see... the inner frame is made with glitter card, you may see it better in the close up! I also used the same glitter card for the right hand trim, layered with adhesive lace and embellished with red gems and used glossy accents to create cute little flowers.

So I printed my image twice one on patterned paper then the next on the plain red colour. I then cut each piece out, I embellished the bow using my copics, white ink pad and white gel pen. I have raised the bow on thin ink pads to give dimension! The patterned paper I inked the edges! Then the gift I adhered over the aperture.
