Bling!

Good morning!  Welcome to another Lily Pad Cards challenge, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  This month we're challenging you to use bling on your creations.  Here's my card.


supplies: white card stock, BoBunny Frost Dot and Buttercup Dot, Hero Arts H5426 Artists Butterfly, CL106 Fantastic Flourishes, CL497 Find Joy, Versafine onyx black and deep lagoon inks, gold and blue gemstones from Hero Arts and Kaiser, gelly roll quickie glue pen and a la mode turquoise sprinkle glitter, black wire for antennae, foam adhesive

I don't ever use this many gemstones on a card, this was kind of painful for me, and I'm now bankrupt in these 2 gem colors!  The Artists Butterfly was stamped twice on gold and turquoise paper, then cut out and paper-pieced back together.  I thought this flourish from one of Hero Arts first clear sets was perfect for its trail, and the sentiment fit well, too.  I added some turquoise glitter to "sparkle" as a final touch.

Please visit Lily Pad Cards to see what the other DT members did!

And if you're interested in winning a Hero Arts clear set I'm giving away, just scroll down 1 post and leave me a comment there.

  1. A lovely card. I like the way you have used paper piecing in this card - something I must try. The flourish works really well and looks like it was made for this card. It certianly fits the challenge with lots of bling! It looks great.
