This week Joanne is all about the sparkle and she wants us to BLING it Up! Jewels, gems, pearls, whatever you have that sparkles and shines will work for this challenge.
When it comes to bling I am a very low maintenance kinda girl. Just one look at my "jewellery" collection will tell you that. I know my hubby is not too upset about that either. The same tends to apply to my cards and layouts. I am usually pretty subtle and minimal with my bling when I can.
This week I created a birthday card using a Tiddly Inks digital image called Anna Belle Birthday Wishes. For my touch of bling, I added tiny Recollection gems around the outside of my scalloped circle. The paper is from American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 paper pad.
Inside the card I added a pop up element to hold a gift card (instructions here). Next time I think I will need to make the inside where the card slides into a little bit deeper.
So dig into your stash and find what sparkles and shines, then head over to Little Red Wagon to join this weeks "Bling it Up" challenge. While you are there be sure to check out the great projects from the other Girlfriends.
Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon. Happy creating everyone!
