Hello there! Anja has a fun challenge for us this week over at the Crazy-4-Challenges site, it's Bring on the BLING! We hope you'll take the time to play along with us.
I need a birthday card for my niece and thought this challenge would give me an opportunity to create something "blingy" that a teenager would like. I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Wet Paint for my sentiment which I stamped in hawaiian shores onto a PTI die cute bookmark. Once I stamped my sentiment, I used the PTI set Ombre Builders and stamped the top half of the bookmark using limeade Ice and hawaiian shore. After that I attached my layered Beautiful Butterfly that I die cut, added three rhinestones on the body and to really bling it up, I added sequins the color of each stamped ombre. I embossed the background with a PTI impressions plate, ran a line of double sided tape about a half inch down from the top and added glitter. This card really looks so much better in person, it sparkles with all of the rhinestones, sequins and glitter.
