NOLA Special

Hello everyone,

My darling daughter returned from her school band trip to New Orleans tonight so this is a card inspired by her trip.

The Peel-Offs image is glittered with Martha Stewart Charoite, Florentine Gold and Peridot glitter.  The image is affixed to a purple paper of unknown origin, Canford gold and a green of unknown origin.  The sentiment is Close To My Heart Happy Birthday stamped in Versafine Onyx Black on Stampin' Up Whisper White.  The embellishments are Crystal Stickers 3mm gold pearls.

My brother spent many years in New Orleans, only recently returning to Canada, and he misses it a lot.  His birthday is in June so I'm going to put this card aside for him.  It is absolutely perfect!  Green, gold and purple are colours indicative of New Orleans.  Each colour has special meaning further to the Church.  Something of a paradox but then, it is New Orleans.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
