Bling it up with All Dressed Up

It's time for another challenge at All Dressed Up and our theme this go-round is to Use Some Bling!  Those are always fun challenges and we'd love to see what you create with an All Dressed Up image.  Be sure and check out the blog and see all the rules of the challenge and the wonderful inspiration from the DT!  All of the All Dressed Up images can be found in the Etsy store.

For my card today I used one of the FREE images from All Dressed Up!  Yes, all you have to do is visit the All Dressed Up blog and download this image.  There are also some other cute, cute (and pretty) images there for free.  I colored the butterflies with Copics and then went over some of the flowers with the Zink of Stella pen.  For my bling I added some tiny little pearls to a few of the flowers and also some shimmery sequins.  After attaching the strip of patterned paper down the side, I did a little zig zag stitching and then stamped the sentiment.

This is my last card for the Design Team for All Dressed Up.  I've decided I must start managing my life a little better and that means cutting down on some of the things I love to do.  I absolutely loved being on this team -they're all such a great group of ladies.  Of course I could never be able to say enough about Wendy's All Dressed Up images either.........beautiful, cute, and everything in between!  A big thank you goes out to Wendy for such wonderful images to work with, the DT coordinators Tracy and Marilyn, and all the ladies on the DT. 

Thanks for stopping by............
Lynn

What beautiful butterflies and I love the strip of DP down the side with the stitching! I know those ladies are sad that you won't be designing with them anymore. It's a shame that real life has to get in the way of our crafty time. I have the same problem!

Such a sweet image and I love your coloring on this one. Your stitching is perfect. I can't sew never mind do a completely straight line as you did here. My hat is off to you. I'm sure this challenge team will miss you but I understand about having time to do things that you need to do. Enjoy your week.

Wow Lynn, I am loving the colors on this card! The butterflies are so pretty and I love the flower vine and script birthday sentiment. I also love that you sewed on your card!! I would love to sew on mine, just need a place for that sewing machine. lol I would probably forget to sew anyway but I so love when people do sew on their cards. Love the pink!! And who can resist sequins?!! Hugs, Brenda
