Bring on the Bling!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

Today's challenge over at Our Creative Corner is to add bling to your card - anything shiny counts! As always, we'd love to have you play along! All the details are on the Our Creative Corner blog, where you'll also find samples from guest designer Michele Boyer, as well as the regular OCC team:

Cindy Haffner
Dawn Easton
Denise Marzec
Jennifer Meyer
Julee Tilman
Laurie Schmidlin
Lynda Benden

I still had "The Story of Us" paper pad on my craft table from a few days ago - it just begs for bling! The silhouette stamp is from Summer Botanicals by Flourishes. I stamped directly onto the blue designer paper in Versafine Onyx Black and added Martha Stewart Onyx glitter to it using heat-and-stick powder. There are also clear gemstones on the four corners of the main panel.

I've been getting quite a chuckle out of the guesses that have come in for this mystery photo. You still have a chance to win the card plus a little goody bag of fun papercrafting stuff. Deadline is Sunday, 9 am EST :)

My "Sketch For You To Try" sample is HERE!

Stamps: Summer Botanicals (Flourishes)
Paper: Basic Black, Ivory Naturals, Buckaroo Blue, Sahara Sand (SU!); "The Story of Us" dp (ATD/Momenta)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: heat and stick powder, paper piercer, ticket corner punch, scalloped border punch (SU!); Onyx glitter (Martha Stewart); black satin ribbon (Offray); clear adhesive gemstone (Heidi Swapp)

How funny, 'anything shiny'. I always thought since diamonds were a girls best friend, it should be rhinestones, and yours is, so I dub you winner of the challenge. I love your BG papers you picked for this and the colors are so rich and elegant. The whole card is.
