One layer sophistication

Hello there!

What a busy day I have had today!!

I made two cards, two tags out of which one went in a bin and I'd like to share one of the cards with you. I made it after seeing the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog, #78:

I have chosen a dark purple/eggplant coloured cardstock for my one layer card. The entire design was created by using the Silver Glitter Frosting Paste and the Theopholis  stencil by GlitzCraft. The border was created by layering the stencil and drying the paste intermittently. 
The sentiment was stamped using the 'Congratulations' stamp by Avery Elle (Petals & Stems set) and my Versamark ink and embossed using a silver embossing powder. 
It is not easy to photograph glittery cards, but I tried my best and hope you will appreciate the simple, elegant and sophisticated beauty of this card:


I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
