Paris Revisited

I have had a little bit more creative time lately - not so much computer time but am loving making the most of those spare minutes - this card is the result of updating some cards I had done when I first started card making and believe me - they needed revamping!  LOL

I wish I could say I only had to add one or two things BUT NO - I basically took the card apart and chopped it up.....

Did some layering and added some bling - black pearls

and a flower - oh and ...yes more bling.....

The end result is a lot more dimension and so much prettier!  I wish I had taken a photo of it before I started!  I am sure I have one somewhere, probably on a Flash Drive - but I will not be hunting for it tonight!  LOL!  We have had a hectic few days and I am going to have an early night tonight - well, that is the plan anyway.  My DD2 turns 13 on Friday and that is the start of the school holidays, so we had a Formals Dinner for her last night with her closest girlfriends - then they slept over - at 4am I had to tell that it was time to stop dancing - some of us needed to sleep - they were full of sugar and good times and having so much fun - this morning they hit the Mall for 5 hours and needless to say - one tired Party Girl tonight - we are all going to catch up on some sleep!!
