Filagree Flowers

I love to see filagree work, especially silver flowers ( a friend of mine recently gave me a card with such flowers on recently). This inspired me to create this card

I stamped 'Mosaic' 40-101 onto white card and coloured with alcohol markers, I then cut out the white spaces leaving only a thin border round the frame.  This was then mounted onto ice blue glitter card with dimensional pads and then onto 'Rose Garden' 14-002 Mix and Match cardstock.

This looks fabulous in real life with the glitter sparkle behind, sorry the photo doesn't pick it up so well.

Here is a side on view to show the dimension

Hope you are having a great week.
Hugs Cathy
