Give Me A Bit A BLING!

Happy Stamptacular Sunday to you!  Our challenge today is to make a card using some BLING!  I'm in a bit of denial that Christmas in only 3 weeks away.  Therefore I just couldn't make anything with a Christmas theme:)  I have been wanting to make a card using a technique I saw on Splitcoast a few weeks ago.  My flower is made using some glimmer mist and a paper towel.  Fun, huh?  I also used the Elegant Flourishes set from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I love flourishes!  Isn't this one beautiful?  I also used a sentiment from a new set by PTI called, "Giga Guidelines."  Please excuse my photo.  For some reason I feel like my pictures are being compressed when I load them onto my computer.  Still trying to figure that one out.  The top of the card uses a Fiskars border punch and some black satin ribbon.  I decided to add my bling using some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, a rhinestone from my stash and dazzling diamonds.

  Please join us this week.  Everyone can use a little BLING in there lives.  Head on over to the blog so you can see all the DT's projects.
