Show us your bling ...

Good morning everybody

At  Let's Ink It Up  this month we want to see your bling.

I seem to be in wedding mode at the moment - maybe it is because I am away next weekend to a wedding - the daughter of my closest friend - we have known each other for nearly 40 years, and I feel privileged to have her as a friend.  This is not going to be for her daughter though - I have something else in mind for that.

For this card I have used a Sarah Kay image which I have coloured with Promarkers.  This is one of a batch I coloured while I was on holiday - a couple of days the weather was pretty dire, so I was glad of some stamps and pens and coloured up quite a few images.  My background papers are from the Basic Grey Plumeria pad.  I have run one piece through an embossing folder with hearts.  The arch shape was cut with a Go Kreate die, and the image is edged with pearls.  Leaves are cut with Doo Hickey dies, and flowers are from stash.

Whimsy Stamps are sponsoring the challenge this month, and the prize is a $15.oo gift voucher to spend on at their store.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Craft us Crazy - Favourite Stamp Company
Crop Stop - Emboss It - I have a panel of dry embossing
Southern Girls - Get your girly on
Crafts and Me - Favourite colour combo
Little Darlings - Flowers
Waste not Wednesday - Use forgotten stuff - Embossing folder, die cut shape - have not used since I bought it
Deep Ocean Challenge - Die Cuts - leaves and arch shape
Crafty Mess - Pink and Cute
