Sir Stampalot August Challenge - "Bring on the Bling"

Good morning,

Doesn't the time fly fast? It's August, time for Summer Holidays and another Sir Stampalot challenge.

The theme this month is "Bring on the Bling" and, once again there is a fabulous prize to be won, kindly donated by Janice and Andy of Sir Stampalot.
For my card I have used a Whiff of Joy wedding cake stamp which I stamped and heat embossed using silver embossing powder. I've added glitter to the icing on the cake and used mirri card to mat and layer it. The sentiment, from Waltzing Mouse, has also been heat embossed in silver and I've added a few gems for extra bling.

I am entering this card into the current challenge at Polka Doodles, where the theme is Generic Male and Female - I hope it's okay as it is a card for both!

Hugs, Clare xx
