Baby, It's BLING

outside!  I love snowflake cards for the simple reason of bling.  That's it.  That's why.  You can bling up a Christmas or Winter snowflake card with glitter, bows, rhinestones, gems and then you can probably add more.  It's like being a kid in the art room....there is no wrong way to doll up a snowflake.  And, now that I have presented my defense.......I guess I should point out that I made one of "those" over the top snowflake cards.  I used another Hero Arts Stamp and Cut that I bought at Archivers when I was there for Scrapfest.  This is called the Poinsettia Stamp and Cut but  but I prefer it to be a snowflake rather than a poinsettia flower.....so be it.  Any ways....here is my card and I hope you like it.  I plan to enter it into Hero Art's Monthly contest in the (of course) Bring on the Bling category.....




I outlined the stamped portion of the snowflake with glue and added glimmer dust to it.  I also added glue to the center "flake" and glitter-ized it also.  Then lots of bling and layers.  I love how this shimmer card stock embosses....the shimmer gives it so much dimension.  Other than finishing this card I had a wonderful weekend and the blahs have been pretty much chased away.  My husband and I went out for dinner and saw the new Bond film over the weekend and it was really good.  Yesterday was a Badger game party at some relatives and that was great because we didn't watch any of the game but instead talked and enjoyed each other's company instead!  And today is, finally, a stay at home day and for the first time in a really long time I think I will be able to take part in a Hero Arts scramble....they usually are held on Saturday's which are very difficult for me to make but today there is nothing planned and a rainstorm coming on so I hope to be ready to play!  Thank you for stopping by today....I appreciate your visit and comments!

Be well,
Sheila

BEAUTIFUL, Sheila! I love circular doily cards and this is so pretty with the added bling.
Sorry I haven't been around much, but we were away on holiday for almost three weeks and I've also been quite ill.
Hope all is well with you and yours:)
