Bling Bling

Bling is a new Challenge at Lily Pad Cards, up today.

Here is my card ... I am actually not really a bling person - so my card is a mixture of natural colors and a bit of bling using some Martha Stewart glitter to cover that die cut border and some silver embossing on the christmas trees.

The card base is a white embossed Classic Fabric Design distressed with antique linen at the edges towards the center leaving a bit of white space...


 Supplies:
HA stamps: CL540, CG245, CL343
Other: MFT open scallop die, Fiskars punch, MS glitter, twine,
HA gems, HA embossing powders white & silver

When I was in New York a couple of years ago I bought some glittery letters at the Tinsel Trading Company - they were sort of vintage looking and I was inspired by these when I created the border for this card - distressing the edges & adding that piece of lace behind it.
