Bling top to bottom for 365


I'm on a roll...and since a circle card is the next challenge, that's a good thing, isn't it?

Right now I have a card with BLING from top to bottom for the 365 card challenge. It uses handmade paper from Paper Zone that has glitter dotted centers. Today Paper Zone had a nice sale - 20% off anything you could fit into their bag. Amy, my enabler, told me about it...but remember how good I've been? I didn't go! That's because I think my Stampin Up order is going to be a doozie...(shhhhhh!) Anyway, the card was super simple and uses a BIG mama bling on the light blue flower that came in a bucket from Michael's bridal supplies...I've got a lot of them to use up, so you may be seeing them on a lot of other cards! Actually this could also qualify as one of the EASY cards from the last challenge. I think it took maybe 10 minutes from start to finish? It took me more than 5 minutes to find that darn BIG Mama bling...otherwise this one would have been finished in less than 5 minutes.

Weather update at 4:55 p.m. - Hailing like crazy now in my back yard and my fingers are COLD...so I better go and create my last card for the challenge for this week!

Hey Elaine! I can't believe how hard it't hailing. And so glad you found the Big Mama bling because your card is so awesome! Great take on that challenge. I can't wait til we go home tomorrow so I can finish up the rest of the challenges this week. 365 is so fun, huh?
