Birthday Blooms

WI15SatHopWelcome

Welcome again to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  We always have such fun on these hops and I know I always look forward to see what the design team does with each challenge.  The challenge this week…BLING!!!

Okay…I am not big on BLING!!!  I mean I can do it and I do like it…but in moderation – LOL!!!  This was an interesting card but it sort of just ‘happened’ on top of my desk.

SatHopBling

So the story with this is that when I was playing with my Birthday Blooms a while back I had stamped, silver embossed, cut out and then left it sitting on my desk.  Well…it happened to be sitting on top of this strip of Silver Glimmer and I thought…WOW…that looks cool!  (And just so you know…I do spend A LOT of time talking to myself…I tell people I am talking to my dogs…but SERIOUSLY they have NEVER listened!  LOL!)  So since I had those two elements and the Silver Glimmer was blingy I decided I am well on my way to my card for this challenge!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Versamark and Silver Emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/2 x 4 1/2, add to card front
  • Stamp flower using Versamark and Silver Emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off and add just a little more BLING!

  1. Well, this beautiful card seems to destined to be made, huh?!?! I love it when scraps on a desk come together for a creation. Thus is SO STUNNING!!!! The bling is perfect! Very elegant Mary!

  2. Your card is beautiful. Just enough bling for me! And, it is so nice to know that your dogs listen to you just as mine do to me. I know I am really stressed when I start to answer myself for the dog.

  3. Mary – you always make the most beautiful cards! I had to C.A.S.E. this of course, but I made mine black and white w/black glimmer paper – beautiful! Thanks for sharing your talent!
