An Elegant Creation

Hello to everyone.  I hope you are enjoying your week-end.  I have a card to share with you that I made for my friend's birthday.  



This is a sort of side view, to hopefully show you the detail. 
 The card is in several layers and has been made using the new Die'sire Create a Card Dies from Crafter's Companion.  This one is Decadence and its fabulous.

I have embossed the inner mirror card layer with the die and then attached a die cut panel and then placed inside a z-fold card, creating a multi-layer creation.  I hope you get the idea. 
The card is made from Centura Pearl card which embosses and cuts like a dream.  I have  stamped and gold embossed the sentiment.  This is from the Frou, Frou Stamp Set - Lets Do Lunch


A front view of my card, which folds flat for posting.
Ribbon, pearls, bling are from my stash.
Die cut swirl and butterfly detail cut in mirror card has been added.
