I used silver as the base card. I embossed silver card and gold self adhesive metal finish with a texture fade folder, mounted as shown then adhered to purple to matt. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.
To add interest I also used a silver necklace around the top card for fun and mounted with raised pads.
I have to say that I am happier than I thought I would be with the finished card! Just goes to show that sometimes the colours you don't usually associate together do in fact work well!
Just a close up of the top section; which I think could make a nice 9albeit rather chunky) ATC
Have a nice day and whenever you can, squeeze in some craft, it is good for the soul!
