Art Deco Fathers Day Card

Finally got back to some crafting after giving myself some time off from my last effort. I thought I'd do something simple, thought Art Deco was the way to go. Simple my eye, I've never cut so many weird angles, and yes all those pieces are individually cut by hand, apart from the circle, that was a nestabilites die and the fany die cuts on the back of the card. I think I prefer this card to the Art Deco birthday card I made. Anyway here it is...
  I used Mirri card and satin Mirri card over a thick card (mirri card tends to curl). The sentiment is computer generated and are the lyrics from The Hollies "he ain't heavy, he's my brother" song though I substituted brother for father. The design on the the sentiments are a perfume bottle rubber stamp (Joanna Sheen made but no longer sells) but I only used the stopper part. The diamant√© chain was also from Joanna Sheen again she no longer sells it. Some fine silver peel offs and a couple of square rhinestones. Here are the pictures I found on the web that inspired this card ...
 Thank you for looking and take care & keep smiling
