What could be more apt for Freshly Made Sketches 200th Challenge than a Congratulations card!

Didn't think I was going to be able to post anything for this week's challenge as I have been having laptop problems which meant I had to revert to my old, on it's last legs (will be lucky to last till the end of this post), one! On top of that I couldn't get my photos transferred from my camera as I couldn't get it to upload to the computer or find the SD adaptor (aargh!) in the end I had to resort to my smartphone and take the photos with that.
I decide for such a simple sketch I should try white on white with a hint of silver.

I've used a pearlised white cardstock throughout with the embossed front panel raised off the base with foam tape to highlight the die cut panel.
The centre of the flower embellishment was created using a glass mat, a hot glue gun and some glitter. I squeezed out some hot melt glue onto a glass mat where it formed a blob and while it was still hot, sprinkled on some silver glitter and allowed it to set.
Payperbox - Pearlised White
