A Sneaky Card!!!!!

I love creating special projects and I particularly love to show case Stamps and Stamp Collections.
For this project I have used the Swiss Pixie Stamps from CC Designs, I bought them from ALL THAT SCRAPS a couple of weeks ago as a whole collection, and thought they would be perfect for this idea I have been working through for a while.
I have kept the over all design simple, as the card is quite complex! (not, but it looks impressive!!)
This is Brigetta!
This sentiment is from a valentine collection by Elzybells, but I think it is quite generic to use for a friend!
Left Inside of card.....
Another Elzybells sentiment......
Sweater Brigetta........
Right Inside of Card.....
Butterfly Nora.....
Yep!! Another Elzybells sentiment.....
Laying Nora........
The Full Inside of the card.....

I love this sentiment, and yes its Elzybells!
I think this really shows the cards complexity!! If you know how to make a Shutter card, this is really easy, its just 2 put together!!
I really enjoyed creating this but the flowers took ages!!
The Ribbon are from my stash; the papers are from MME A Christmas set; some pearlescent cardstock and some stickles, a final touch was some leaves punched out of Old Olive, from Stampn' Up.
Why a sneaky card???????? A friend and I went to a craft shop where someone was working on one of these and when we asked about it, him whipped it away as though it was a top secret project and told us, if we want to see how it was done we'd have to watch Create and Craft!!! It was so funny and pathetic, I couldn't believe it. We had already seen it demoed at the NEC and its something I have been thinking about. Some people are so silly!!!!!! So I thought I'd post it before he gets chance to air his!!!
Hope you like!
Have a lovely Bank Holiday
