Bring on the Bling

Our challenge over at Stamps R Us is themed "Bring on the Bling"!  You have two weeks to submit your entry.  Our wonderful sponsor is Crafty Sentiments and if you're the winner of our challenge you'll receive a fabulous prize from them.


I've used some Basic Grey DP for this and popped up the image inside a circle nestie.  He's got Stickles on his ear muffs and glitter on the snow.  The ribbon is some kind of shiny, shimmery, red stuff ( borderline GAUDY! LOL!) with wire so you can shape it pretty much any way you want.  I punched out two very small snowflakes and placed a red rhinestone in the center of them.

We never see snow in this part of the country - well, very seldom.  I'd really like to see a tiny bit so if any of y'all up north get tired of being hammered by the white stuff, send some to South Texas!

I'll also enter this in the challenge over at Crimbo-Crackers (themed Make it Sparkle)

Thanks for stopping by........and be sure and check out the challenge at Stamps R Us.

Lynn, How cute. I love the image and the papers. That ribbon is so pretty and, of course, your snowflakes with added bling are just the right touch. I'm going to try to work on a card for this challenge today. See you later.

Hi Lynn,

The ribbon is not gaudy at all... just perfect for Christmas. And I love the snowman - look at him with his arms open wide. I think he wants to give me a hug... haha!
The snow flakes look lovely and so does the paper.
Hope DH is recovering... healing wishes to him.

What a wonderful card. I LOVE the image and how you accented the snowflakes! I've been wondering about using wired ribbon and you've now inspired me to try it. This is a fab card.

Gorgeous snowman and beautiful card! Actually I think it would be nice if you had to drive to see snow. I could live with that. LOLOL It's nice as long as you don't have to drive in it. :-D
