bling your thing?

Is bling your thing? I picked up some bling words last Thursday, and thought I'd put them to good use and work up a card for a couple challenges at the same time. And did I pick up any bargains at Mega Meet, you ask? How about this flower stamp set - 4 stamps for a quarter? Or the set of 20 Heidi Swapp clear extras for $1.49? I used one of the 4 butterflies from that set to dot the "j" in the word "joy" for today's card.

This card is in black, white, gray and pink for The Play Date Cafe's PDCC28 color challenge, and uses Mercy's MTSC72 sketch challenge as well! I stamped the floral background using the challenge colors, double matted and popped up that center panel using pop dots, then folded the butterfly to add a bit of dimension to it, and used my bow-easy to create the mini bow as I'm definitely bow-challenged!



stamps: Scrappy Cat's In Bloom; paper: recycled white from work, SU's Basic Black and Going Gray card stocks; ink: Color Box's Gray Whale, Ranger's Black Soot distress ink, and SU's Regal Rose; accessories: Heidi Swapp's clear extras and words bling, ek success' black grosgrain ribbon; tools: bow-easy
