Tina has set the challenge for us all this week and she wants us to 'Sparkle & Shine'.....so whatever you can add to your card or project to Bling it Up..........then we want to see all your fabulous creations!Believe it or not, the idea for my design today came about at the office as i was opening a new box of copy paper! The packaging had unusually narrow corrugations so..... i brought some home with me!! and this is the outcome :)
My card base is 123mm square which i've covered with some yummy pink Bazzill cardstock. I've then added a piece of white embossed through my Cuttlebug with 'Swiss Dots'. The heart was cut with my Cricut machine with George/Basic Shapes at 3.5 inches, i first had to peel back the top layer to expose the ridges on the cardboard before cutting.
I've used some Ranger 'snow cap' paint dabber onto the cardboard heart and sprinkled on some Glamour Dust, the gems are Kanban and the lovely Hydrangeas are Prima. The little fronds on the flowers were made with a tiny strip of the pink cardstock and then curled with my scissors.............. and some Making Memories rub-ons for the sentiment. I added a thin line of Glamour Dust around the entire edge of the card.
We had a hard time choosing our favourite last week from all your wonderful entries, i'm sure this week will be even harder! We hope you will enjoy the challenge and can't wait to see all your 'sparkling' creations............and don't forget it doesn't have to be a card! we love to see other projects too :)
I will be offering some more Candy for you this evening..........so check back at 8pm GMT to be in with a chance............. Happy Monday! ;-D
