Bling It Up

Bling is this week's theme on the Cas-tastic Wednesday Challenge and here is my effort. Bling is not really my thing being a less-is-more type of crafter, so I didn't go overboard with the gems. Although perhaps I should have, as although the sun was shining they are not very obvious in this photo.

As you can see, I used pesky acetate for this card
and also a stamp by Elusive Images. I stamped with Versamark, blew the dust off my chalks and this is the result! The blue sentiment border is backed with green ribbon on both sides of the card for a neat finish. Whilst making this card I realised that unwittingly, the last card I made also had the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. Note to self...must get away from this format!

Thank you for stopping to look.

  1. This is really lovely Fiona. Love the colours and the EI stamp. Can see why you call acetate pesky as it's so difficult to work with and not cover in finger marks.
    Thanks for your kind comment - my eye is on the mend and I shall be back to full sight tomorrow thank goodness as it's been driving me crazy!!!

  2. This is gorgeous!
