Bring on the Bling - {C4C277}

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.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has created:
