Got to Have Bling!

The current challenge at DeNami Design is to use rhinestones on your project.  This is a product that I never really used until recently.  I really like the sparkle that they add.

I had to try 3 times to get this card right.  All three attempts were completely different!  But this is the one that I really liked.

I stamped the Butterfly Daisy Circle and cut it out with a Lifestyle Crafts cookie cutter die.  I colored the image with Stampin' Up markers in So Saffron and Orchid Opulence.  I used Crystal Lacquer to add Lavendar Frost Sparklets glitter to the butterflies.  I cut a strip of lavender cardstock and punched it with the Floral Lace punch from Martha Stewart.  I added rhinestones to the center of the flowers and added a piece of rick rack down the center.

I used a piece of lace trim and shaped it into a circle and glued it to the back of the image.  I use a piece of extra foam from trimming stamps to attach it to the card.

I am happy with the way this card turned out.  Maybe what they say is true...the third time's the charm!
