I decided to go with MFT Wednesday Stamp Club #43.
The long skinny panel was made for à la modes! I inked up Time to Celebrate and colored her in with my Copics. I paper pieced the bottom layers of the cake and slathered on the Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I only wish you could get the full affect of the sparkly goodness from the picture! I had a hard time deciding on the pattern paper but, in the end I went with My Minds Eye (shocker, I know! ;) ). My Janome and I are not speaking again so I couldn't stitch like I wanted to. Next best thing was to paper pierce around the edges. I added the Faux Crochet Border strip under the SU! Organdy ribbon (even it has a blingy quality!). Lastly I put silver Making Memories brads in the corners and added the final touch, Flourish BLING!!!
What card would be complete without some BLING on the inside too? I kept the inner design pretty basic. Now that I look at it I think it could make a nice, simple card front. :) Check out the Faux Crochet Die-namics, I double it up to give it a matted look. I will definitely be doing it again! The sentiment is mounted on a scallop circle (Spellbinders) and circled with BLING, which is layered on top of the smallest Decorative Doily Duo Die-namic. That does it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by. If you get a chance hop over to the Gallery at Splitcoast Stampers to see the rest of the cards for this contest. There is some major eye candy.
