Bring on the Bling!!!

I am loving the bling lately....................This is a card I made for a "Quality Swap" with some of my Close to My Heart sister consultants. I was really happy with the way it turned out. It uses one the new paper packs from the Spring 2009 Idea Book and the upcoming March Stamp of the month. Like many stamp sets (and it seems especially the SOTMs), this was one I didn't really like at first, but now that I've played with it, it is definitely one that will remain in my stash.

That's Amore paper pack
March SOTM--Butterfly Wings
Clear Sparkles
Blush Designer Ribbon

vanilla cream

size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

In fact, I liked the way this card turned out so much, that I decided to "bling it up" a bit and enter it into a contest. I definitely like this version even more with the added bling!! (and I sure hope I win!!!)

additional supplies:
Pretty Pins
Chocolate & Colonial White Ribbon Rounds
Prisma Glitter (added to butterfly bodies and 2 corners of sentiment block)

NOTE: I even "blinged up" the Pretty Pin by covering the flower with Liquid Glass, adding a sparkle to the middle and dipping it in Prisma Glitter. I really like the way it adds extra sparkle!
