Black and White Bling

Today's card was inspired by an embossing folder that came with a recent issue of Papercraft Essentials and a sheet of black and clear gems I bought from Poundland ages ago and haven't even opened yet!.

I've followed the line of dots on the embossing folder, adding a black gem on to each dot. I've then cut the bottom half of the embossed card in the same shape. The greeting was done on the computer then die cut with a small oval die. From a distance the card reminds me of one of those Egyptian 'eyes'!
