And this really is "haute", at least when the card is lying flat, because there are so many layers of decoupage!
Actually I think if I make another like this - and the Couture de Jour die cut decoupage pad has four of each design - I will just use alternate layers because the decoupage projects TOO far, even with a tiny amount of gel glue on each layer, making the card unstable and, of course, the postage expensive when the card is sent!
The main motif is the die cut decoupage, mounted on a doiley. I first covered the card in pink patterned paper from the co-ordinating pad, then set a slightly smaller square of a blue patterned paper from the same pad at an angle to it, trimmed flush with the card edges and covered the join with liquid pearls. It is decorated with elements cut from several other sheets of the matching papers.
