First off I need to make a HUGE apology to Chrissie and Mandi at Less Is More. They did me the honor of selecting my week 40 submission and I didn't even know. It's rare that I don't look to see who has been ShowCASed because I like to see if I selected the same cards. My only excuse (and a sorry one at that) is I have been so busy at work, I don't bother getting on line in the evenings. **hangs head in shame**
Ladies, thank you both for the honor of selecting my Orange and Red card to be ShowCASed. As soon as I can figure out how, I will make sure I place the tag in my side bar.
Now for this weeks challenge ......
Above are two submissions for this weeks Less Is More challenge; to use "a bit of bling". On both cards the bling is the buttons; the pink is obvious, but unfortunately the black rhinestones don't show up in the picture.
A little about the cards:
I used glitter on the black card and Stickles on the pink, I like the glitter better as it toned down the blue highlights made with a marker. On the hat I used Copic Spica glitter pen in black, it looks wonderful IRL. The Snowman is Inkadinkado and the sentiment is SU!s All Holidays. I used SU! markers in Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Blue Bliss and Pumpkin Pie. The Rhinestones are from Prima and the die cut snowflakes are by Memory Box. Card stock is SU Whisper white, Regal Rose and Basic Black. I think both cards turned out well and are cute. I prefer the card with the black trim, but the pink one is special because it is for the youngest daughter of my BFF.
I have two other cards in the works but need to get to my chores and make some dinner. Hopefully I will get them done before I go off to bed and can post them tomorrow.
Thank you for stopping by; looking forward to seeing what all the LIMettes have made. :)
