Ooh La La, Let's Bling It On!

Everyone knows, It's All About The Bling, Baby! That's what we want to see this fortnight, at Ooh La La! Our theme for this challenge is... "Bling It On!" Everyone loves bling, so you have no reason not to play along with us, in this fun challenge! Get our your bling and start creating, then hop over to ooh La La's Challenge Blog and enter your card or project for a chance to win some yummy goodies!

All patterned papers used on my card are digi papers from ooh La La Creation's Kiddiwinks CD. You can get this fantastic CD in Ooh La La Creations' shop, here. These CD's have tons of wonderful digi papers and pre-colored images to choose from!!

I just had to use this hilarious Stella image and sentiment, both from Bugaboo Stamps. Stella cracks me up and is one of my favorite characters! Stella is definitely all about the bling! I colored her with my wonderful Promarkers. The card Layout fits the sketches at Friday Sketchers, and at Wild Orchid Challenges. I put the papers on, and then accidentally flipped the sketch upside down, before I attached my image, sentiments and embellishments! LOL! You can tell the sketch is still there, though, just parts of it are upside down! The image is punched using a circle punch and then matted on a light pink circle that I embossed in my Cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. Then, I matted it on another circle cut from glittered, textured blue cardstock. (Yes, I cut the circle free hand so its crooked in place.... Shhh don't tell on me!) I used these wired stemmed teardrop crystals from Magnoilia, around the edges of the image, and attached them with glue dots. These new pink stemmed flowers are from Recollections. I got these for Christmas, in a scrapbooking goodie box! Aren't they yummy?! The sentiment is punched with an oval punch, then mounted on on pale lavender glittered cardstock, and punched with a scalloped oval by Stampin Up. I used foam mounting tape to attache the sentiment and add dimension.

The inside of the card says, "It's a New Year, a New Beginning, and a New you!"

I made this card for my cousin, who is now single and starting a new chapter in her life by starting a new, healthier diet and a starting to focus more on taking care of herself and her appearance. It's about time she focus on making herself happy, first! I've been making and sending her lots of cards, lately, to keep her thinking positive!
