Bling It Up - Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge



Morning fellow crafters and bloggers :) Back again today with my DT card for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge where this week our theme is 'Bling it Up'.  The winner of the challenge will win a $20 voucher to spend in the online store and as there are some GORGEOUS new release dies this week, this is a brilliant prize! :)

Now, I can definately say I was inspired by my sister when making this card! lol :D  We have a brilliant friendship and though we live 600 miles apart, its just about perfect! ;)  I know she would really appreciate this card too as I am guilty of cutting her fringe off when we were little whilst no one was looking! ;) I thought it looked much better lopped off, but mum had to drag her off to the hairdressers to get it finished! lol :D  Soz Sis!



I have had this funny Mo Manning 'StepSisters' image for ages, and this is the first time I have used it, but I think I grinned the whole time I was making this card, they have such funny cross faces! I hand-stitched MME Vanity Fair papers, and used just one corner die from a set of 3 in the new Lace Corner Deco H set and also used the new Mini Fanciful Flourish die on the dotty panel.

I made the larger flower from the Sweet Williams Die and added stamens from the new Build a Flower #1


The base of the card has the new Spring Flower Burst doily, and again I repeated the corners, flowers, stamen and the Queen Anne's Lace border die.



All the dies used on this card are:

I had a chuckle too - not surprised you had a smile whilst creating this. Love the floral base you created for the easel & your use of white really gets the eye to focus on certain elements.
