Cute Card Thursday - Bit o' Bling

Hello everyone. Another glorious day - yippee!!

I've made a card for my best friend's birthday next week and as it's got some gems on it I thought I would enter it in this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "Bit o' Bling".

The bling is on the flower and also the dots on the i's of the sentiment.

Not a great photograph I'm afraid, as the sun hasn't quite got round to the front of the house (best time for photos) and I'm too impatient to wait!

The stamp I have used is a Sugar Nellie called "Post Box". Those of you who are familar with this stamp will see I have only used part of it, the rest of it I stamped onto the envelope.

I used the largest of the long scalloped rectangle nestabilities to make the card and cut the DP the same shape and size to stick onto the front. I used a smalled rectangle from the same set to cut the image but I ran it through the wizard twice to get the size I wanted, the smallest rectangle was used for the sentiment.

I've coloured the image with Copics, and used Brenda Pinnick DP, Prima flowers, Dovecraft gems and sentiments from Elzybells "Everyday Greetings".

Thank you for visiting my blog.
