CCT: bit of bling - 'Yay!'

CCT this week wants to see some bling. Unfortunately, that's one thing that just doesn't come across in photos so you'll have to take my word for it that my card is super sparkly and blingy in real life (not to mention very 3D). I've blinged up the balloons, dusted pearl ex around image, have used pink blingy cardstock and to top it all, 3 square gems for good measure!


  • Images: cute girl and both sentiments (love the sentiments in this set, aren't they great?! ) from Greeting Farm set 'Susie Surprise' in stock over at Silly Monkeys
  • Colouring: Copics. Balloons have been covered with glossy accents then I've sprinkled glamour dust over the yellow one and twinklets (fine ground glass) over the other 2 plus in her hair clips
  • Paper: old Making Memories I found amongst my hoard
  • Others: Various border punches, 'labels three' nesties, ribbon and gems

Here's a side shot of Susie to show you how 3D she is -I stamped her out 4 times and decoupaged her.

Hubby's got today off rather than his normal Monday so probably won't get as much done as I'd like but we'll see (want to ink up some more Anyas and WoJ, try a bit more crochet plus my craft room is starting to look messy again - just not enough time in the day is there?!)
