Bling obsession!

Wow, two cards in one day! Must be all of the sweet tea I am drinking in this hot weather! I recently received a wonderful gift from my friend Elaine as she knows I love love love bling and it was a small handmade box full of glittery pearl and rhinestone embellishments. I have been reluctant to use them because they are so gorgeous and right now you can't get them in the US but I understand that is going to be changing soon so I parted with one of the butterflies and made this.

I know it is hard to see the sparkle on the butterfly but trust me, it is stunning irl! I would like to play along with the Handcrafted Card Company challenge which is to use "Royal" colors in your submission but since I now see they only accept UK submissions I might be out of luck. I have gone with a lovely deep purple theme and just got my new WOC Le Jardin tag stamps in so added one of those in too. Enjoy your weekend, I am off to get this mop of hair cut!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous.

Wonderful job coloring that super sweet image. I especially love the hair, clothing, and cast shadows.

I love your paper choices, layout, and flowers.

That butterfly is gorgeous. I don't know if I would have used it. I would have kept it and ogled it. :D
