High Thank You

Today I decided to make a silver and red thank you card, which was to incorporate butterflies. I used a square silver base card and layered a red mirror panel onto this. Then I split the panel using a silver holograph card and a red swirls patterned paper. To the top of these I added the silver butterfly image. On the silver side red diamante butterflies were used for the finish, on the red side silver gems with a crafted for you charm. A thank you peel-off was used to finish.

This card is being entered for the following challenges:

Audio Book Review
High Profile by Robert B. Parker

A high profile celebrity, and his lover, is killed in a small village causing the police chief to have to deal with heavy media and high ranking officials, whilst he also tries to find out who raped his ex-wife. The case hits many brick walls before finally coming together, although the ending is a little disappointing. This is a fast paced crime novel and has a very enjoyable plot. However, I personally think this is a book that is better on paper than CD as there is a lot of he said…., she said…., then he said…, which really stands out more when listening to somebody else read it. When you read it yourself you tend to just glance over the he said, she said parts of the sentences. Overall, a good story though.

Thank you for looking
