Something Shiny

The Week 72 Challenge at Less is More is to make a card with something shiny - I think this qualifies!  I couldn't resist making another iris fold element for a card.  I know you can probably see how shiny the embossed gold cardstock is, but most of the papers used to fill in the star have a sheen to them, too.  The piece in the center is crazy sparkly - I think holographic is the right word.

This is a birthday card for a sweet, smart and all-around lovely friend.  She is chic and glamorous, down-to-earth, funny and sharp, and just about the loveliest person you could meet.  I can't help but smile every time I think of her.  Hope she likes the card!

If your friend doesn't adore this card, she's not as lovely as you say! It's great, and I love the iris folding.

cheers,
