a bit of glamour!

Good afternoon, hope you are all enjoying what isleft of the weekend! Dinner is in the oven, Mathilda is  happily snoozing after her lunch, so all is peaceful here! I'm making the most of it because tomorrow I will be looking after my younger grandaughter and I just know that 1 bouncy three-year-old + 1 bouncy puppy(with teeth and a deep lust for whatever said 3 year old is playing with! ) does not add up to any kind of peace!
Anyway, back to the card, my entry for this weeks LIM challenge : week 94 glamour and glitz. Quite simple, a bit of embossing and matting, the mask was stamped and embossed then cut out and mounted with sticky pads, a small feather and a few gems added. The stick is a cocktail stick painted black and wrapped with ribbon.
That's all for now. Thanks for looking!
