Bling Is A Girl's Best Friend at Shelly's Images

Wow, Darn blogger had issues and wiped out my post! Grrr and I just noticed! Okay, let me start over! LOL

Today is Terrificially Thrilling Thursday at Shelly's Images! Do you know what that means?! That's right! Time for a new challenge! This week, we want to see you Bling it Up, because Bling Is A Girl's Best Friend! Whooo Hooo! We all love our bling, so this is the perfect time to show it off! Hurry over to Shelly's Images and link up your blingy projects for a chance to win!

My card today is for a friend who's going through some personal issues right now, and I wanted to remind her that I am thinking of her. I am using this gorgeous rose image from Shelly's Images, colored with Promarkers. The mint green panel is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and the darker green panels are embossed with a leafy vine patter.The ovals around the image are cut and embossed with Nestabilities by Spellbinders. I've added pink rhinestones around the oval frame, to "bling it up." Both the white and black and white polka dotted ribbons are from my stash. I purchased this fabulous butterfly back in March at the scrapbook convention. My sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and is punches with oval punches from Stampin Up, then mounted with foam mounting tape for dimension.

Card layout uses the sketch at Little Claire's Designs.
