Bring on the bling with The Stamping Bazaar.....

Hi Susan here....

Today at The Stamping Bazaar we are starting a new challenge and this week the theme is 'Bring on the Bling', so get out those gems and glitter and anything else sparkly and shiny and join in with us.
For full details of the challenge and for some fabulous inspiration from the design team call across to

Now onto my card...

My backing paper is from my stash, I have used bits and pieces for this card, for a little bit of added texture I have used a piece of white corrugated card down the side. The punched border has been made using a border die from Spellbinders. The edges have been glittered with stickles. The hearts are a die from Sizzix. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobby Craft, the leaves are from a punch. My ribbon and gems are as usual from our local market.

My all time favourite digi image designed by Marina Neira is 'Marvin with Daisies', just love this little bat, he is so cute and cuddly. I have used Promarkers to colour the image and have mat and layered with a paper doily. The edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles.

My sentiments were made on the computer and then glittered with stickles, I have suspended them with jump rings from the bow.
